Nowadays, the most popular techniques of the speech processing are the recognition of all kinds (the speech, the speaker and the state of speaker recog.) and the text-to-speech synthesis. In both these domains, there are possibilities to use the glottal pulses waveforms. In the recognition techniques we can use them for the vocal cords description and then use it for the classification of speaker's state (physiological or mental state) or for the classification of a speaker. In the text-to-speech techniques we can use them for the speech timbre changing. This paper describes some methods for obtaining of glottal pulses waveforms from recorded speech. There are several results obtained by application of described methods.
