In telephone conversations, listeners’ impressions about speakers may vary depending on the quality of the voice heard, which is degraded to different extents depending on the transmission characteristics. A student job is offered to assist the research of the detection and prediction of speaker personality from the speech signal under different telephone channel distortions. This work is divided into several parts. First, an extensive conversational speech database is to be prepared for posterior analysis. Its speech segments need to be classified into different dialogs. Then, the effects of channel degradations on subjective speaker personality perceptions are studied employing the “prepared” speech. For that, auditory tests are to be conducted presenting speech stimuli of different quality to a group of listeners.
