This paper describes a voice conversion system based on parameter transformation [1]. Voice conversion is the process of making one person’s voice “source” sound like another person’s voice “target”[2]. We will present a voice c onversion scheme consisting of three stages. First an analysis is performed on the natural speech to obtain the acoustical parameters. These parameters will be voiced and unvoiced regions, the glottal source model, pitch, energy, formants and bandwidths. Once these… CONTINUE READING
