Audio to score matching by combining phonetic and duration information [article]

Rong Gong, Jordi Pons, Xavier Serra
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We approach the singing phrase audio to score matching problem by using phonetic and duration information - with a focus on studying the jingju a cappella singing case.  ...  This leads us to propose a matching approach based on the use of phonetic and duration information.  ...  This work is partially supported by the Maria de Maeztu Programme (MDM-2015-0502) and by the European Research Council under the European Union's Seventh Framework Program, as part of the CompMusic project  ...

Matching phonetic information in lips and voice is robust in 4.5-month-old infants

Michelle L Patterson, Janet F Werker
1999 Infant Behavior and Development  
The present studies were conducted to replicate and extend past research by examining how robust the ability to match phonetic information in lips and voice is at 4.5-months of age.  ...  The finding that bimodal phonetic matching is replicated with full, naturalistic heads and with male stimuli supports the hypothesis that infants are able to link phonetic information presented in the  ...  structure do not lead to differences in the capacity to match phonetic information in the lips and voice.  ...

and restore the time sequence information.  ...  Since this model ignores the sequence information in speech samples for efficient indexing of the database, a Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) based temporal matching technique is used to re-rank the results  ...  A new method of ranking audio documents which combines positional weights and similarity scores was also proposed.  ...

Detecting topical events in digital video

Tanveer Syeda-Mahmood, S. Srinivasan
2000 Proceedings of the eighth ACM international conference on Multimedia - MULTIMEDIA '00  
Finally, we use a probabilistic model of event likelihood to combine the results of visual and audio event detection that exploits their time cooccurrence.  ...  It is also a very challenging problem requiring the detection and integration of evidence for an event available in multiple information modalities, such as audio, video and language.  ...  We merge the two ordered lists in time, and compute a combined score for each of the matches.  ...

Query by example search with segmented dynamic time warping for non-exact spoken queries

Jorge Proenga, Arlindo Veiga, Fernando Perdigao
2015 2015 23rd European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO)  
The built system is low-resource as it tries to solve the problem where the language of queries and searched audio is unspecified.  ...  This paper presents an approach to the Query-by-Example task of finding spoken queries on speech databases when the intended match may be non-exact or slightly complex.  ...  Therefore, the search is based on a phonetic-level match, and no word-level information is acquired.  ...

Two-month-old infants match phonetic information in lips and voice

Michelle L. Patterson, Janet F. Werker
2003 Developmental Science  
Infants aged 4.5 months are able to match phonetic information in the face and voice (Kuhl & Meltzoff, 1982; Patterson & Werker, 1999) ; however, the ontogeny of this remarkable ability is not understood  ...  learning of phonetic information.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank all of the parents who volunteered to participate in our study with their infants.  ...

Discrimination tests of visually influenced syllables

Lawrence D. Rosenblum, Helena M. Saldaña
1992 Perception & Psychophysics  
Results show, however, that subjects are more likely to match the audio Ivai to the audiovisually consistent Ivai, suggesting differences in phonetic convincingness.  ...  Subjects were asked to match an audio syllable Ivai either to an audiovisually consistent syllable (audio Ivai-video Ifal) or an audiovisually discrepant syllable (audio /hal-video Ifa/).  ...  Preparation of Audiovisual Stimuli To find the most compelling visually influenced syllable, a number of different audiovisual syllable combinations were recorded and dubbed and then used in informal identification  ...

Employing Smart Logic to Spot Audio in Real Time on Deeply Embedded Systems [chapter]

Mario Malcangi
2011 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Researchers are very interested in using audio as interaction medium for text retrieval in spoken documents (conference speeches, broadcast news, etc.) to provide smart access to spoken audio and audio  ...  Not only does it represent semantic information; the same audio frame contains behavioral, environmental, psychological, and expressive information.  ...  Less challenging is the task of pattern matching applied to phonetic units. The main problem that arises is related to the very short duration of phonetic units compared to the duration of a word.  ...
