State of the art objective measures for quantifying voice quality mostly consider estimation of features extracted from the magnitude spectrum. Assuming that speech is obtained by exciting a minimum-phase (vocal tract filter) and a maximum-phase component (glottal source), the amplitude spectrum cannot capture the maximum phase characteristics. Since voice quality is connected to the glottal source, the extracted features should be linked with the maximum-phase component of speech. This work… CONTINUE READING
