Re: normalizing pitch in human speech



Dear Mathias,

You might probably be interested by STRAIGHT (http://www.wakayama-u.ac.jp/~kawahara/STRAIGHTadv/index_e.html) or Praat (http://www.fon.hum.uva.nl/praat/).

Regards,

Dear List,

We like to produce speech stimuli which are characterized by normalized pitch hight - so called flattened speech.
That means, finally the speech signal does not contain pitch changes anymore, but remains easy understandable.


I imagine that the allorythm has to do FFT, definition of the normalized pitch, afterwards resynthesis.

Does anyone has any experience with this?

thanx for all ideas,

Mathias
