The prevalence of kidney disease, particularly diabetic and hypertensive kidney disease is increasing rapidly specially in the disadvantageous group of population throughout the world. A cross sectional survey was carried out at certain selected slum areas of Mirpur in Dhaka city of Bangladesh over the period from July 2003 to June 2005, and a total of(More)
This paper presents a Bangla phoneme recognition method for Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR). The method consists of two stages: i) a multilayer neural network (MLN), which converts acoustic features, mel frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs), into phoneme probabilities and ii) the phoneme probabilities obtained from the first stage and corresponding(More)
This paper presents a distinctive phonetic features (DPFs) based phoneme recognition method by incorporating syllable language models (LMs). The method comprises three stages. The first stage extracts three DPF vectors of 15 dimensions each from local features (LFs) of an input speech signal using three multilayer neural networks (MLNs). The second stage(More)
This paper describes a medium size Bangla speech corpus preparation and the comparison of the performances of different acoustic features for Bangla word recognition. A small number of speakers are use for most of the Bangla automatic speech recognition (ASR) system, but 40 speakers selected from a wide area of Bangladesh, where Bangla is used as a native(More)
This paper discusses the dominancy of local features (LFs), as input to the multilayer neural network (MLN), extracted from a Bangla input speech over mel frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs). Here, LF-based method comprises three stages: (i) LF extraction from input speech, (ii) phoneme probabilities extraction using MLN from LF and (iii) the hidden(More)
In this paper, we propose a system for environment recognition using selected MPEG-7 audio low level descriptors together with conventional mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCC). The MPEG-7 descriptors are first ranked based on Fisher’s discriminant ratio. Then principal component analysis is applied on top ranked 30 MPEG-7 descriptors to(More)
In this paper, we introduce a system for Bangla digit automatic speech recognition (ASR). Though Bangla is one of the largely spoken languages in the world, only a few works on Bangla ASR can be found in the literature, especially on Bangladeshi accented Bangla. In this work, the corpus is collected from natives in Bangladesh. Mel-frequency cepstral(More)
In this paper, we introduce a novel distinctive phonetic feature (DPF) extraction method that incorporates inhibition/enhancement functionalities by discriminating the DPF dynamic patterns of trajectories relevant or not. The trajectories of each DPF show a convex pattern when the DPF is relevant and a concave one when irrelevant. The proposed algorithm(More)
Segmentation of speech into its corresponding phones has become very important issue in many speech processing areas such as speech recognition, speech analysis, speech synthesis, and speech database. In this paper, for accurate segmentation in speech recognition applications, we introduce Distinctive Phonetic Feature (DPF) based feature extraction using a(More)
