A system and method of converting source speech to target speech using intermediate speech data is disclosed. The method comprises identifying intermediate speech data that match target voice training data based on acoustic features; performing dynamic time warping to match the second set of acoustic features of intermediate speech data and the first set of acoustic features of target voice training data; training a neural network to convert the intermediate speech data to target voice training data; receiving source speech data; converting the source speech data to an intermediate speech; converting the intermediate speech to a target speech sequence using the neural network; and converting the target speech sequence to target speech using the pitch from the target voice training data.
