Aims and Scope

For over ten years, the scientific community has been witnessing a permanent rise in the number of modern feature-learning approaches for speech and voice analysis. Although those strategies have been placed at the forefront of current artificial intelligence research, uninterpretable models and high computational costs characterise their main drawbacks. Thus, the intention of this special issue is to attract the attention to the fact that, in many problems, handcrafted extraction may still provide prominent solutions with low computational costs and easy-to-interpret features.

Topics of Interest

The particular topics of interest are those focusing on handcrafted feature extraction approaches for speech and voice analysis. Applications include, but are not necessarily limited to:

• text-dependent, text-prompted and text-independent speaker identification and verification

• spoken word, limited-vocabulary and large-vocabulary speech recognition

• speech emotion identification

• speech characterisation

• voice activity detection

• idiom recognition

• speech pathology detection

• emerging applications, including coronavirus detection based on speech

Before submission, prospective authors should carefully read over the journal author guidelines before submitting the electronic copy of their complete manuscripts through the journal online submission system. Please choose “VSI:SHFESVA” for the “article type” during submission.
