Sixth European Conference on Speech Communication and Technology
The paper describes formant based speaker zation method suitable for speech visualization and articulation training systems. The method estimates the error function obtained from speaker formant characteristics for a given vowel. Estimated error function gives information for critical band filter shifting on mel-warped frequency scale. The paper also describes accurate technique for formant tracking.
