Standard Mel frequency cepstrum coefficient (MFCC) computation technique utilizes discrete cosine transform (DCT) for decorre-lating log energies of filter bank output. The use of DCT is reasonable here as the covariance matrix of Mel filter bank log energy (MFLE) can be compared with that of highly correlated Markov-I process. This full-band based MFCC(More)
Pre-processing of Speech Signal serves various purposes in any speech processing application. Out of these, silence/unvoiced portion removal along with endpoint detection is the fundamental step for applications like Speech and Speaker Recognition. The proposed method uses Probability Density Function (PDF) of the background noise and a Linear Pattern(More)
ABSTRACT The primary problem with lung sound (LS) analysis is the interference of heart sound (HS) which tends to mask important LS features. The effect of heart sound is more at medium and high flow rate than that of low flow rate. Moreover, pathological HS obscures LS in a higher degree than normal HS. To get over this problem, several HS reduction(More)
Auscultation, the technique of listening to heart sounds with a stethoscope can be used as a primary detection system for diagnosing heart valve disorders. Phonocardiogram, the digital recording of heart sounds is becoming increasingly popular as it is relatively inexpensive. In this paper, a technique to improve the performance of the Least Square Support(More)
Selection of features is one of the important tasks in the application like Speaker Identification (SI) and other pattern recognition problems. When multiple features are extracted from the same frame of speech, it is expected that a feature vector would contain redundant features. Redundant features confuse the speaker model in multidimensional space(More)
—Speech activity detection (SAD) is an essential component for a variety of speech processing applications. It has been observed that performances of various speech based tasks are very much dependent on the efficiency of the SAD. In this paper, we have systematically reviewed some popular SAD techniques and their applications in speaker recognition.(More)
—In this paper, we propose a novel family of window-ing technique to compute Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficient (MFCC) for automatic speaker recognition from speech. The proposed method is based on fundamental property of discrete time Fourier transform (DTFT) related to differentiation in frequency domain. Classical windowing scheme such as Hamming window(More)
