Traditionally, the majority of speech enhancement and voice conversion methods rely on parametric modeling of speech a promising in addition, the inventory search method is applied to estimate source speaker characteristics for voice conversion in noisy environments thesis type masters thesis.
Communication is the most important part of life around 1% of the total population of the world is suffering from hearing impairment, and their life is not as easy as it is for human without limitations in this thesis we propose a model that recognize asl and convert signs to voice using radial basic function neural network. In this phd dissertation, the study and design of voice conversion (vc) systems are addressed vc systems modify a speaker voice (source speaker) to be perceived as if another speaker (target speaker) had uttered it this technology has mainly emerged as a novel technique to create new speakers for text-to- speech.
This thesis aims to implement a voice conversion system that transforms one persons voice into another persons voice mel frequency cepstral coefficients are used as coefficients for one set of tests, while straight spectrogram is tried out as another set of features the system is built using an artificial neural network. This thesis deals with text-independent solutions for voice conversion it first introduces the use of vocal tract length normalization (vtln) for voice conversion the presented variants of vtln allow for easily changing speaker characteristics by means of a few trainable parameters furthermore, it is shown how vtln can be. Within a speaker independent framework master of science thesis, 72 pages, 6 appendix pages march 2014 major: signal processing examiners: dsc jani nurminen, msc hanna silen, prof moncef gabbouj keywords: voice conversion, emotion conversion, expressive speech, prosody modeling.
