Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In the technology of voice conversion, reproduction of emotion and intonation, pause is one of the research issues. However, it is not easy to collect enough parallel speech data with various expressions. In this paper, we used non-parallel narrative speech data as expressive speech data for training and conducted the subjective evaluation of synthesized speech on personality and expression.
