Product of power spectrum and group delay function for speech recognition
MetadataShow full item record
Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) are the most widely used features for speech recognition. These are derived from the power spectrum of the speech signal. Recently, the cepstral features derived from the modified group delay function (MGDF) have been studied by Murthy and Gadde  for speech recognition. In this paper, we propose to use the product of the power spectrum and the group delay function (GDF), and derive the MFCCs from the product spectrum. This spectrum combines the information from the magnitude spectrum as well as the phase spectrum. The MFCCs of the MGDF are also investigated in this paper. Results show that the cepstral features derived from the power spectrum perform better than that from the MGDF, and the product spectrum based features provide the best performance.
