An empirical estimate of the precision of likelihood ratios from a forensic-voice-comparison system

Morrison, Geoffrey; Zhang, Cuiling; Rose, Philip


An acoustic-phonetic forensic-voice-comparison system was constructed using the time-averaged formant values of tokens of 61 male Chinese speakers' /i/, /e/, and /a/ monophthongs as input. Likelihood ratios were calculated using a multivariate kernel density formula. A separate set of likelihood ratios was calculated for each vowel phoneme, and these were then fused and calibrated using linear logistic regression. The system was tested via cross-validation. The validity and reliability of the...[Show more]
