ODYSSEY 2004 - The Speaker and Language Recognition Workshop
May 31 - June 3, 2004
A new paradigm of voice prompted speaker recognition is presented. The vocal prompts that the speaker is asked to repeat are used by the speaker recognition system for segmenting the data and for normalizing the verification results. Using the vocal prompts themselves instead of the matching text makes the overall system more flexible and truly language independent. A technology demonstration system was set up and a small-scale experiment measured both speaker verification and text confirmation performance. Testing results show good performance when using human vocal prompts as well as synthesized vocal prompts.
