Real-Time Speech Signal Segmentation Methods
Many researchers have developed algorithms for speech-signal segmentation in such applications as automatic speech recognition, speech coding, echo cancellation, automatic noise reduction, signal-to-noise ratio estimation, nonuniform time-scale modification, estimating the speech rate, automatic language identification, and speaker emotion recognition. Unlike algorithms that work offline, the authors developed two algorithms for real-time speech analysis as applied to detection of vowel-regions and estimation of speech rate. The accuracy, reliability, and real-time performance of these algorithms were evaluated in samples of Polish speech; experimental results showed that they performed equal to or better than existing offline approaches.
