First Experiments on Speaker Identification Combining a New Shift-invariant Phase-related Feature (NRD), MFCCs and F0 Information

Aníbal Ferreira

Abstract

In this paper we report on a number of speaker identification experiments that assume a phonetic-oriented segmentation scheme exists such as to motivate the extraction of psychoacoustically-motivated phase and pitch related features. MFCC features are also considered for benchmarking. An emphasis is given to an innovative shift-invariant phase-related feature that is closely linked to the glottal source. A very simple statistical modeling is proposed and adapted in order to highlight the relative discrimination capabilities of different feature types. Results are presented for individual features and a discussion is also developed regarding possibilities of fusing features at the speaker modeling stage, or fusing distances at the speaker identification stage.
