This paper describes a speaker adaptation technique for style control based on multiple regression hidden semi-Markov model (MRHSMM), In the MRHSMM-based style control technique, when available training data is very small, the resultant model would produce unnatural sounding speech. To overcome this problem, we propose a model adaptation technique for MRHSMM, which is similar to the MLLR adaptation technique used in speech recognition and speech synthesis. We formulate the model adaptation… CONTINUE READING
