Speaker Recognition and Authentication
In today’s society, highly accurate personal identification systems are required. Passwords or pin numbers can be forgotten or forged and are no longer considered to offer a high level of security. The use of biological features, biometrics, is becoming widely accepted as the next level for security systems. Speaker recognition and authentication is a method of identifying persons from their voice. Speaker-specific characteristics exist in speech signals due to different speakers having different resonances of the vocal tract; these features are extracted from the voice of the speaker and used for the recognition of individual speaker.
