What is Emotional Speech Synthesis?

From:Nexdata Date:2024-04-07

In the field of voice interaction, speech synthesis is an important part, and its technology is also constantly developing. In recent years, there has been a growing interest and demand for emotion synthesis. Emotional speech synthesis will allow the machine to communicate with us like a real person. It can express different emotions such as angry voices, happy voices, and sad voices, and even different emotions of different intensities.

Emotional speech conversion technology can convert speech from one emotional state to another under the premise of keeping the identity of the speaker and the content of the language unchanged. Simply put, it is to properly transfer the emotional expression from an emotional speaker to the target speaker while maintaining a good target speaker timbre.

Emotional Speech Synthesis Technology

Emotional speech synthesis systems can use speaker and emotion embedding model solutions. Use emotion as a label, that is, add an emotion label on the basis of the original network, and the information of these emotions will be learned through the network.

Speaker embedding is to obtain a speaker vector through a neural network, which requires a certain scale of multi-person database for training.

Emotional embedding requires emotional data combined with speaker vectors to implement an emotional speech synthesis model, so high-quality, multi-emotional data is required.

For example, cross-speaker emotion transfer can use emotion and timbre perturbation to learn speaker and emotion-related spectrums respectively, and provide explicit emotion features for the final speech generation. Speaker correlation is to maintain the timbre of the target speaker, and emotion correlation is to capture the emotional expression of the source speaker. Therefore, data from multiple people with multiple emotions and multiple people without emotion are needed for joint training.
