Oesophageal voice improvement and parameterization

International Conference and Exhibition on Otolaryngology

Abstract
The larynx cancer is the most common pathology among the smokers. Otolaryngologists use the treatment of this pathology that is usually the extirpation of the larynx and so its vocal folds, so the patients produce their voice directly from the esophagus. The objective parameters of characterization for these kind of esophageal voices (as pitch, jitter, shimmer or HNR) get out of the ranges normality due to the low quality of the sound itself and its intelligibility. In this talsk is introduced a new kind of technological algorithm which corrects the differences between normal and oesophageal parameters by different techniques as Wavelet Transform, Kalman filtering, LPC speech model and give some ideas about how to improve the quality by speech signal processing.
