Abstract:

Note: This is the second edition of a previously announced book.

This monograph describes an experiment in Forensic Speaker Identification,
showing how speech samples from the same speaker can be discriminated from
speech from different speakers with acoustic features commonly used in
forensics. It also explains what is now considered the legally and
logically correct approach to Forensic Speaker Identification, and presents
data that can be used both in real casework and in further testing.

Forensic Speaker Identification is typically concerned with addressing the
question of whether two or more speech samples have been produced by the
same, or different, speakers. Research over the last decade has shown that
the legally and logically correct way of doing this is by using a Bayesian
Likelihood Ratio. The monograph explains what a Likelihood Ratio is; why
its use is now considered correct; and how it can be used to successfully
discriminate same-speaker pairs from different-speaker pairs. The tests are
performed on data from eleven male speakers of Australian English, with
non-contemporaneous samples, using formant values at target for their long
monophthongal vowels. Likelihood Ratios are estimated using two formulae
with different assumptions regarding the distribution of the reference data.

Reference data is also presented which is potentially useful for various
permutations of the different-speaker hypothesis for male speakers of
Australian English.
