The subject of this paper is the conversion of a given speaker's voice (the source speaker) into another identified voice (the target one). We assume we have at our disposal a large amount of speech samples from source and target voice with at least a part of them being parallel. The proposed system is built on a mapping function between source and target spectral envelopes followed by a frame selection algorithm to produce final spectral envelopes. Converted speech is produced by a basic LP… CONTINUE READING
