- Effect of states and mixtures in HMM model and Connected word Recognition of Profoundly deaf and hard of hearing speech. Jeyalakshmi, C.; Krishnamurthi, V.; Revathy, A. // International Journal of Engineering & Technology (0975-4024);Dec2013/Jan2014, Vol. 5 Issue 6, p4938
It is a challenge for many years that how to fix the no. of states and no. of mixtures when HMM models are used for speech recognition. In this paper we have analysed that for hearing impaired speech that is partially intelligible to people who are speaking to them frequently and it is not...
- Effects of Speech Clarity on Recognition Memory for Spoken Sentences. Van Engen, Kristin J.; Chandrasekaran, Bharath; Smiljanic, Rajka; Stamatakis, Emmanuel Andreas // PLoS ONE;Sep2012, Vol. 7 Issue 9, p1
Extensive research shows that inter-talker variability (i.e., changing the talker) affects recognition memory for speech signals. However, relatively little is known about the consequences of intra-talker variability (i.e. changes in speaking style within a talker) on the encoding of speech...
- Simulated Critical Differences for Speech Reception Thresholds. Pedersen, Ellen Raben; Juhl, Peter Møller // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Jan2017, Vol. 60 Issue 1-12, p238
Purpose: Critical differences state by how much 2 test results have to differ in order to be significantly different. Critical differences for discrimination scores have been available for several decades, but they do not exist for speech reception thresholds (SRTs). This study presents and...
