The Voice Conversion Challenge 2016 took place at Interspeech 2016 in San Francisco. The task of the challenge was speaker conversion, i.e., to transform the voice identity of a source speaker into that of a target speaker while preserving the linguistic content. Using a common dataset consisting of 162 utterances for training and 54 utterances for evaluation from each of 5 source and 5 target speakers, 17 groups working in VC around the world developed their own VC systems for every combination of the source and target speakers, i.e., 25 systems in total, and generated voice samples converted by the developed systems.
