Accurate estimation of glottal closing instants (GCIs) and opening instants (GOIs) is important for speech processing applications that benefit from glottal-synchronous processing including pitch tracking, prosodic speech modification, speech dereverberation, synthesis and study of pathological voice. We propose the Yet Another GCI/GOI Algorithm (YAGA) to detect GCIs from speech signals by employing multiscale analysis, the group delay function, and N-best dynamic programming. A novel GOI… CONTINUE READING
