Segmentation and classification of broadcast news audio

  title={Segmentation and classification of broadcast news audio},
  author={Thomas Hain and Philip C. Woodland},
Broadcast news audio data contains a wide variety of different speakers and audio conditions (channel and background noise). This paper describes a segmentation, gender detection and audio classi cation scheme for such data which aims to provide a speech recogniser with a stream of reasonably-sized segments, each from a single speaker and audio type while discarding non-speech data. Each segment is labelled as either narrow or wide band and from either a female or male speaker. The segmentation… CONTINUE READING
