Speaker idiosyncratic rhythmic features in the speech signal


Dellwo, Volker; Leemann, Adrian; Kolly, Marie-José (2012). Speaker idiosyncratic rhythmic features in the speech signal. In: Interspeech 2012, Portland (OR), USA, 9 September 2012 - 13 September 2012, 1-4.

Abstract

Speakers' voices are to a high degree individual. In the present paper we report about an ongoing research project in which we study how temporal characteristics of human speech (e.g. segmental or prosodic timing patterns, speech rhythmic characteristics and durational patterns of voicing) contribute to speaker individuality. We report about the creation of the TEVOID-Corpus (Temporal Voice Idiosyncrasy) that we are currently creating in our lab at Zurich University. 8 speakers producing 16 spontaneous sentences each are currently in the database which is rapidly growing. The paper gives an overview of the general ideas for the data collection and first results showing that there are significant rhythmic differences (%V, %VO, VarcoPeak) in spontaneously produced sentences between speakers of Zurich German.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
