A speech processing system for ensuring safety and security, namely, acoustic-based security system is addressed. Focusing on indoor security such as school security, we study for an advanced acoustic-based system which can discriminate emergency shout from the other speech events based on the understanding of speech events. In this paper, we describe fundamental results of shouted speech.
