We previously proposed a method for adding emotions to synthetic speech using the vowel features of a speaker. For the initial investigation in this earlier study, we used utterances of Japanese names to demonstrate the method. In the present study, we use the proposed method to construct emotional synthetic speech for a sentence formed from the emotional speech of a single male subject and produce results that are discriminable with good accuracy.
