Application of Shifted Delta Cepstral Features in Speaker Verification

Jose R. Calvo, Rafael Fernández, Gabriel Hernández


Recently, Shifted Delta Cepstral (SDC) feature was reported to produce superior performance to the delta and delta-delta features in cepstral feature based language identification (LID) systems [1, 2]. This paper examines the application of SDC features in speaker verification and evaluates its robustness to channel mismatch, manner of speaking and session variability. The result of the experiment reflects superior or at least similar performance of SDC regarding delta and delta-delta features in speaker verification.
