Speaker segmentation is an essential part of a speaker diarization system. Common segmentation systems usually miss speaker change points when speakers switch fast. These errors seriously confuse the following speaker clustering step and result in high overall speaker diarization error rates. In this paper two methods are proposed to deal with this problem: The first approach uses speaker identification techniques to boost speaker segmentation. And the second approach applies text segmentation… CONTINUE READING
