  • Automatic identification of foreign accents is valuable for many speech systems, such as speech recognition, speaker identification, voice conversion, etc. [...] Key Method Each speech sample is processed into multiple speech segments with equal length. For each segment, deep neural networks (DNNs) are used to train on long-term statistical features, while recurrent neural networks (RNNs) are used to train on short-term acoustic features. The result for each speech sample is calculated by linearly fusing the…Expand Abstract
