A novel approach for MFCC feature extraction
The Mel-Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCC) feature extraction method is a leading approach for speech feature extraction and current research aims to identify performance enhancements. One of the recent MFCC implementations is the Delta-Delta MFCC, which improves speaker verification. In this paper, a new MFCC feature extraction method based on distributed Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT-II) is presented. Speaker verification tests are proposed based on three different feature extraction methods including: conventional MFCC, Delta-Delta MFCC and distributed DCT-II based Delta-Delta MFCC with a Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) classifier.
