Forensic voice comparison with monophthongal formant trajectories - A likelihood ratio-based discrimination of 'schwa' vowel acoustics in a close social group of young Australian females

Rose, Philip


An experiment is described relating to estimation of strength of evidence in likelihood ratio-based forensic voice comparison. It is asked whether a better performance is obtained from point estimation of formant pattern targets in monophthongal vowel acoustics rather than formant trajectories. The hypothesis is tested on non-contemporaneous recordings of a custom-built challenging database of 26 young Australian female voices performing a map task. Evaluation with the log likelihood ratio cost...[Show more]
