     Posted on: 2020-03-28

Advanced users with appropriate knowledge (gained e.g. by taking the Phonexia Academy Advanced Training) may want to finetune behavior of the technologies to adapt to the nature of their audio data. Modifying original BSAPI configuration files directly can be dangerous – inappropriate changes may cause unpredicatble behavior and without having a backup of the unmodified file it's difficult to restore working state. User configuration files provide a way to override processing parameters without modifying original BSAPI configuration files. WARNING: Inappropriate configuration changes may cause serious issues! Make sure you really know what you are doing. User configuration file is a…

Voice Inspector – supporting technologies

     Posted on: 2019-06-28

Automatic Speaker Identification (SID) is the most important but not the only Phonexia technology that is implemented in Voice Inspector (VIN). Apart from SID, forensic experts, users of VIN, can benefit from automatic Signal-to-Noise Ratio calculation, Voice Activity detection, Phoneme search, and a Wave editor which incorporates the waveform, spectrum and power panel. Let's have a look on how to utilize individual technologies. Signal-to-Noise Ratio Recording quality can strongly influence the reliability of SID results and so the outcome of a forensic case. Therefore, VIN uses a module of Phonexia Speech Quality Estimation (SQE) to calculate the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR)…
