This paper presents a novel algorithm for automatic detection of Glottal Closure Instants (GCI) from the speech signal. Our approach is based on a novel multiscale method that relies on precise estimation of a multiscale parameter at each time instant in the signal domain. This parameter quantifies the degree of signal singularity at each sample from a multi-scale point of view and thus its value can be used to classify signal samples accordingly. We use this property to develop a simple… CONTINUE READING
