Acoustic analysis of dysarthric speech
2000 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper describes one part of an EU project, ENABL, in which speech recognition systems are used to provide access by voice to computer software. An acoustic analysis of the speech of fourteen motorically disabled persons, twelve with dysarthria and two without, is presented. The analysis is based on a standard description of dysarthric speech and parameters such as fundamental frequency, syllable rate, speech/articulation rate, reading speed, dysfluencies and articulatory deviations are measured. Implications for speech recognition systems are discussed.
