The speaker recognition technique used here is based on GMM. This approach consists of three phases: parameterization, model training, and classification. We compare a model of a speech extracted from an unknown speaker with the models of speakers contained in our database. Models are calculated with EM (Expectation Maximization) algorithm for GMM (Gaussian Mixture Models). We study the influences of several parameters: different texts in the training process and in the testing process, numbers of Gaussians, the number of speakers, the amount of training data (length of the .wav file in seconds), numbers of iterations.
