Automatic duration-related salience detection in Brazilian Portuguese read and spontaneous speech


This work presents an automatic prosodic salience detector algorithm which does not require the use of language-specific duration values. It is implemented in two steps: automatic detection of vowel onsets (VO) followed by the detection of normalized VO-to-VO duration peaks. The algorithm’s performance is compared to that of a semi-automatic version… (More)
