Enhanced VQ-Based Algorithms for Speech Independent Speaker Identification

  title={Enhanced VQ-Based Algorithms for Speech Independent Speaker Identification},
  author={Ningping Fan and Justinian P. Rosca},
Weighted distance measure and discriminative training are two different approaches to enhance VQ-based solutions for speaker identification. To account for varying importance of the LPC coefficients in SV, the so-called partition normalized distance measure successfully used normalized feature components. This paper introduces an alternative, called heuristic weighted distance, to lift up higher order MFCC feature vector components using a linear formula. Then it proposes two new algorithms… CONTINUE READING
