The signals of running speech and sustained vowels of normals and subjects suffering from dysphonia were analyzed statistically with respect to the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The distribution of the SNR measured in multiple overlapping frames in the speech signal was described by a linear combination of the distribution frequencies for SNR = 0 dB, 0 dB… (More)
