Abstract : Performance variability in speech and speaker recognition systems can be attributed to many factors. One major factor, which is often acknowledged but seldom analyzed, is inherent differences in the recognizability of different speakers. In speaker recognition systems such differences are characterized by the use of animal names for different types of speakers, including sheep, goats, lambs and wolves, depending on their behavior with respect to automatic recognition systems. In this… Expand
