Voice Morphing
Voice morphing means the transition of one speech signalinto another. Voice Morphing which is also referred to as voicetransformation and voice conversion is a technique to modify asource speaker's speech utterance to sound as if it was spokenby a target speaker. The core process in a voice morphing system is thetransformation of the spectral envelope of the source speakerto match that of the target speaker and linear transformationsestimated from time-aligned parallel training data arecommonly used to achieve this.
Applications{some of the applications }
 Text To Speech (TTS)2.In public speech systems3.For special effects ( just like video or image morphing isdone )4.To diminish Ethnical barriers.{Focus on TTS the most………}
 Text To Speech (TTS):-
A text-to-speech (TTS) system converts normal languagetext into speech; other systems render symbolic linguisticrepresentations like phonetic transcriptions into speech.Synthesized speech can be created by concatenatingpieces of recorded speech that are stored in a database.
{ That is we keep a database of the different phonetics andsubstitute the ones that correspond in our text }Systems differ in the size of the stored speech units; asystem that stores phones or diphones provides the largestoutput range, but may lack clarity.{ ‘phones’ and ‘diphones’ are phonetic terms here… phonemeans an individual phonetic element, while diphones is anadjacent pair of phones . Google for more info…}For specific usage domains, the storage of entire words orsentences allows for high-quality output. Alternatively, asynthesizer can incorporate a model of the vocal tract andother human voice characteristics to create a completely"synthetic" voice output.
