Title
(EN) Accent translation
Abstract
(EN)

Techniques for accent translation are described herein. A plurality of audio samples may be received, and each of the plurality of audio samples may be associated with at least one of a plurality of accents. Audio samples associated with at least a first accent of the plurality of accents may be compared to audio samples associated with at least one other accent of the plurality of accents. A translation model between the first accent and a second accent may be generated. An input audio portion in a first spoken language may be received. It may be determined whether the input audio portion is substantially associated with the first accent, and if so, an output audio portion substantially associated with the second accent in the first spoken language may be outputted based, at least in part, on the translation model.
