Analysis of Speech in Human Communication

Mr. Basavaraj N Hiremath, Ms. Malini M Patil


The human communication has a vitalmode called speech which results from the voice along with knowledge of language. The voice of each person is distinct because individual-specific vocal cord anatomy, vocal cavity, and oral and nasal cavities. It forms a basic block for copious knowledge into various analysis like lexical analytics, natural language processing, text mining, sentiment and satire. Apart from linguistics analysis, the physics of voice contributes to uniquely cognize as a signal. The paper aims at understanding a computer program called ‘PRAAT’ to analyze and synthesize a phonetics by computer. The work carried out in the paper focuses on presenting the comparative analysis real time voice data sample and the benchmark voice data in praat for all the parameters of the voice analysis. The results are promising and make a way to build decision making solutions to patterns of voice, recognition and reproduction processes using the facts of analytics.
