New text independent speaker identification method is presented. Phase spectrum of all-pole linear prediction (LP) model is used to derive the speech features. The features are represented by pairs of numbers that are calculated from group delay extremums of LP model spectrum. The first component of the pair is an argument of maximum of group delay of all pole LP model spectrum and the second is an estimation of spectrum bandwidth at the point of spectrum extremum. A similarity metric that uses group delay features is introduced. The metric is adapted for text independent speaker identification with general assumption that test speech channel may contain multiple speakers. It is demonstrated that automatic speaker recognition system with proposed features and similarity metric outperforms systems based on Gaussian mixture model with Mel frequency cepstral coefficients, formants, antiformants and pitch features.

The isolated word speech recognition system based on dynamic time warping (DTW) has been developed. Speaker adaptation is performed using speaker recognition techniques. Vector quantization is used to create reference templates for speaker recognition. Linear predictive coding (LPC) parameters are used as features for recognition. Performance is evaluated using 12 words of Lithuanian language pronounced ten times by ten speakers.

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.
