AN EXPERIMENT WITH SPECTRAL ANALYSIS OF EMOTIONAL SPEECH AFFECTED BY ORTHODONTIC APPLIANCES

Jiří Přibil – Anna Přibilová – Daniela Ďuračková

   The contribution describes the effect of the fixed and removable orthodontic appliances on spectral properties of emotional speech. Spectral changes were analyzed and evaluated by spectrograms and mean Welch's periodograms. This alternative approach to the standard listening test enables to obtain objective comparison based on statistical analysis by ANOVA and hypothesis tests. Obtained results of analysis performed on short sentences of a female speaker in four emotional states (joyous, sad, angry, and neutral) show that, first of all, the removable orthodontic appliance affects the spectrograms of produced speech.

Keywords: emotional speech, spectrogram, periodogram, statistical analysis
