Using Articulatory Position Data to Improve Voice Transformation
Source: Carnegie Mellon University
Voice transformation (also known as voice conversion or voice morphing) is a name given to techniques which take speech from one speaker as input and attempt to produce speech that sounds like it came from another speaker. One compelling argument for good voice transformation is that it reduces the difficulty in creating additional synthetic voices with new identities and styles once an existing voice has been created based on a full-sized corpus. There are further voice transformation applications for security, privacy, and assistive technologies.
