The problem of text-independent speaker recognition based on the use of vocal tract and residue signal LPC parameters is investigated. Pseudostationary segments of voiced sounds are used for feature selection. Parameters of the linear prediction model (LPC) of vocal tract and residue signal or LPC derived cepstral parameters are used as features for speaker recognition. Speaker identification is performed by applying nearest neighbour rule to average distance between speakers. Comparison of distributions of intraindividual and interindividual distortions is used for speaker verification. Speaker recognition performance is investigated. Results of experiments demonstrate speaker recognition performance.

The problem of speaker identification is investigated. Basic segments – pseudostationary intervals of voiced sounds are used for identification. The identification is carried out, comparing average distances between an investigative and comparatives. Coefficients of the linear prediction model (LPC) of a vocal tract, cepstral coefficients and LPC coefficients of an excitation signal are used for identification as features. Three speaker identification methods are presented. Experimental investigation of their performance is discussed.

The use of vector quantization for speaker identification is investigated. This method differs from the known methods in that the number of centroids is not doubled but increases by 1 at every step. This enables us to obtain identification results at any number of centroids. This method is compared experimentally with the method (Lipeika and Lipeikienė, 1993a, 1993b), where feature vectors of investigative and comparative speakers are compared directly.
