Abstract

Security in human identification system has become a major concern nowadays, especially for sending information verbally. Therefore, the need of protecting the internal factor especially human speech is a main objective in this study. The characteristics of the human speech using several methods has been continuously practiced are outlined, for instance ceptral analysis, linear prediction coding, and the Pitch Synchronous Overlap-Add (PSOLA) method. This paper described the used of frequency sample variation, FSV technique to transform speech signal to a deeper, higher or lower tone. The analysis using PSOLA method with this technique and Matlab as GUI has been performed. The developed system is capable of transforming the input speech into three types of output speech namely male, female and child. The results show that the system is successfully and effectively portray different people with realistic gender changes to conceal the identity. It is said to be a potential system for any kind of security particularly by disguising the character of the voice. The alterations with other voice variable are going to be a further development.
