An approach of Feature Techniques using Warped frequencies

  • 1 Polytechnic University of Tirana Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Engineering, Department of Mathematical Engineering, Tirane, Albania


In this paper we will use different feature extraction approach in order to compare the stability of the Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) on different SNR noise, in different situations. By using the classic feature extraction like: Mel filter Bank, Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT), Discrete Fourier Transformation (DFT). After we implement this methods for the different situations then we will warp the frequency of this methods directly on the spectrum in order to see if we get better results. The results will be compared with one another using the Word Error Rate algorithm (WER).
