Optimizing Voice Recognition using Various Techniques

Dr.S. Lakshmi Narayana, J. Suneetha Devi, I. Bhargav Reddy, P. Harish


Voice recognition is a process of recognizing a person
on the basis of their speech sample. This paper describes various techniques that are used for voice recognition in order to optimize the recognition rate. The different techniques that are described in this paper are Linear Predictive Coding (LPC), Neural Networks (NN),
Mel Frequency Cepstrum Coefficients (MFCC), Vector quantization (VQ), Euclidean Distance. MFCC and LPC are used to extract speaker specific characteristics from voice signal. Neural Networks and
Euclidean Distance are used for matching the characteristics extracted using MFCC and LPC. The recognition rates are calculated in each method and they are compared. Mel Frequency Cepstrum Coefficients
gives better recognition rate when compared with the other two
techniques. Various other approaches for implementing voice
recognition are Hidden Markov Modeling (HMM), Gaussian Mixture Modeling (GMM), and Dynamic Time Warping etc. The Voice Recognition system has potential applications in various fields. Some of them are access control to computers, telephone banking, forensics, speech recognition etc.
