Abstract

This paper presents a method of text-prompted multistep speaker verification for reducing verification errors. The method is developed for our speech processing system which utilizes competitive associative nets (CAN2s) for learning piecewise linear approximation of nonlinear speech signal to extract feature vectors of pole distribution from piecewise linear coefficients reflecting nonlinear and time-varying vocal tract of the speaker. This paper focuses on reducing verification errors by means of multistep verification using Gibbs-distribution-based extended Bayesian inference (GEBI) in text-prompted speaker verification. The effectiveness of GEBI and the comparison to BI (Bayesian inference) is shown and analyzed by means of experiments using real speech signals.
