Voice Conversion Challenge 2016

Compare different voice conversion systems and approaches using the same voice data!

Task of the 1st Challenge

The task was speaker conversion, which was a well-known basic task in voice conversion.

We focused on 16 kHz speech and signal-to-signal conversion strategies. No transcription was provided and the use of phonetic information given manually was NOT allowed. Participants were free of using additional data (for training purposes) different from the database from which the speakers corpora were provided.



Participants needed to strictly follow the Challenge rules:
