Abstract: Speech-to-speech translation (S2ST) system is important for human-machine interface. In our previous study, we have proposed a speech conversion system from neutral to emotional ones by considering emotion space spanned by the Valence and Activation axes (V-A space). To build relationships between V-A space and acoustic features, Adapted Network Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) was applied. Neutral speech was converted to an emotional speech to control the values of acoustic features that were related to a position of V-A space. However, the proposed conversion system has some problems to control the acoustic features of the neutral speech. In this paper we propose a new method to control fundamental frequency (F_0) contour. In order to control the F_0 contour, Fujisaki model was used. F_0 contour was modified by controlling the parameters of Fujisaki model. The results showed the F_0 was able to control using Fujisaki model.
