Abstract:

This study is directed toward the improvement of speaker recognition techniques by developing an effective set of characterizing measurements to be made on the voice signal. Specific measurements are made on speech events that have been segmented and located in the utterance. In this study, there segments are located manually. The selection of these segments and the aspects of each to be measured are guided by acoustic and phonological theory and relations of vocal tract shapes and gestures to speech.
