Introducing Acceptably Realistic Variations in Human speech Samples Through Granular Synthesis
2014 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This study investigates whether pitch manipulation of pre-segmented voice samples using a commercially available proprietary granular synthesis engine can produce variations realistic enough to be considered a useful and acceptable alternative to creating additional re-recorded variations. This is done by testing whether the test subjects could perceive any difference in realism between unprocessed and processed stimuli. The study concludes that without a complete prosodic rule set for the language in question it may be problematic to implement such a function in a fully automatic fashion.
