To improve the likability of speech, we propose a voice conversion algorithm by controlling the fundamental frequency (F0) and the spectral envelope and carry out a subjective evaluation. The subjects can manipulate these two speech parameters. From the result, the subjects preferred speech with a parameter related to higher brightness.
