Vtln-based Cross-language Voice Conversion

  title={Vtln-based Cross-language Voice Conversion},

In speech recognition, vocal tract length normalization (VTLN) is a well-studied technique for speaker normalization. As cross-language voice conversion aims at the transformation of a source speaker’s voice into that of a target speaker using a different language, we want to investigate whether VTLN is an appropriate method to adapt the voice characteristics. After applying several conventional VTLN warping functions, we extend the conventional piece-wise linear function to several segments… CONTINUE READING
