The task of speaker recognition or speaker identification becomes very important in our digital world. Most of the law enforcement organizations use either automatic or manual speaker identification tools for investigation processes. In any case, before carrying out the identification analysis, they usually need to record a voice sample from the suspect either for one to one comparison or to fill in the database. In this paper we describe the parameters of speech signal which are important for speaker identification performance, we propose the approaches of quality assessment and provide the practical recommendations of taking the high quality voice sample, acceptable for speaker identification. The materials of this paper might be useful for both soft/hardware developers and forensic practitioners.
