Details We introduced a new foundation of interactive investigation of functional speech sounds, based on our inventions, STRAIGHT, a speech analysis, modification and resynthesis framework, and a generalised morphing framework, which can morph arbitrarily many voices with individual and temporal control of constituent attributes. We also introduced a set of realtime interactive tools for providing understanding of speech production physics, physiology of voicing and articulatory organs, auditory perception and engineering representations. We also made the latter tools open sourced. Finally, we implemented a system to add glowl-like impression to any singing voices as an example of our proposed framework.
