This inspection technique is inconvenient for a number of reasons, such as its high cost, the duration of the inspection, and, above all, the fact that it is an invasive technique. This paper looks into the possibility of measuring the quality of a voice starting from an audio recording. The existing parameters in current literature ("classic parameters") which allow quantifying the quality of a voice have been studied, and the parameters that present better results have been selected. Also, seven new high order statistics (HOS) based parameters are proposed to parameterize the voice signal. On the other hand, a software package has been developed which carries out the automatic detection of dysfunction in phonation. A success rate of 98.3% has been obtained by using both the classic and the HOS based proposed parameters.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/44115||ISSN:||1110-8657||DOI:||10.1155/S1110865701000336||Source:||Eurasip Journal on Applied Signal Processing[ISSN 1110-8657],v. 2001, p. 275-284|
