Time-frequency spectral error for analysis of high arousal speech

P. Gangamohan, Suryakanth V Gangashetty, B. Yegnanarayana


´╗┐High arousal speech is produced by speakers when they raise their loudness levels. There are deviations from neutral speech, especially in the excitation component of the speech production mechanism in the high arousal mode. In this study, a parameter, called the time-frequency spectral error (TFe) is derived using the single frequency filtering (SFF) spectrogram. It is used to characterize the high arousal regions in speech signals. The proposed parameter captures the fine temporal and spectral variations due to changes in the excitation source.
