The ability to capture and reproduce the voice timber and the speech prosody of a given person has made impressive progress, e.g., with recent Ircam projects : based on several hours of recording of an actor reading texts, entirely new synthetic speech of incredible resemblance can be uttered in the same language ; also, using much less training data, voice timber can also be transferred to some extent to the natural speech of another speaker. In this work, we would like to investigate ways to push further such systems to create polyglot voice doubles, with various applications. The intern will have to get acquainted with existing voice analysis and reproduction (either by synthesis or by transfer) techniques and will try and alleviate the current mono-lingual limitations.
