The spontaneous speech is continuous, where the emotions are expressed in certain moments of the dialogue, given emotional turns. Therefore, it is necessary that the real-time applications are capable of detecting changes in the speaker's affective state. In this paper, we emphasize on recognizing activation from speech using a few feature set obtained from a temporal segmentation of the speech signal of different language like German, English and Polish. The feature set includes two prosodic features and four paralinguistic features related to the pitch and spectral energy balance. This segmentation and feature set are suitable for real-time emotion applications because they allow detect changes in the emotional state with very low processing times. The German Corpus EMO-DB (Berlin Database of Emotional Speech), the English Corpus LDC (Emotional Prosody Speech and Transcripts database) and the Polish Emotional Speech Database are used to train the Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier and for gender-dependent activation recognition. The results are analyzed for each speech emotion with gender-dependent separately and obtained accuracies of 94.9%, 88.32% and 90% for EMO-DB, LDC and Polish databases respectively. This new approach provides a comparable performance with lower complexity than other approaches for real-time applications, thus making it an appealing alternative, may assist in the future development of automatic speech emotion recognition systems with continuous tracking||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/55746||ISSN:||0957-4174||DOI:||10.1016/j.eswa.2015.07.062||Source:||Expert Systems with Applications [ISSN 0957-4174], v. 42 (24), p. 9554-9564|
