11 © Fraunhofer FKIE Corinna Harwardt High-Level Features I … are features relying on linguistic content or features which are calculated on parts of the signal longer than the normally used approximately 20 ms in frame-based approaches … might for example use prosodic, phonetic or idiolectal information. … lead to additional information compared to acoustically motivated features like MFCCs … shall therefore be used additionally to acoustic features and not exclusively … are relatively robust against distortions

12 © Fraunhofer FKIE Corinna Harwardt High-Level features II Goal: Pick a high-level feature, which does not need a speech recognizer High-Level features under consideration: F0 statistics as proposed in (Reynolds et al and Rose 2002) Formant statistics (Becker et al. 2008)

13 © Fraunhofer FKIE Corinna Harwardt Different degrees of vocal effort Problem: The recognition performance degrades for several speech processing tasks if speech with high vocal effort is used without additional training (Becker et al. 2008). The goal is either: Find robust features for speaker recognition with normal and high- vocal effort. Or: to find a method to predict the changes of acoustic features due to raised vocal effort.
