Speaker Identification is the task of claiming a speaker’s identity based on the characteristics contained in the voice signal. The identification is done by dividing the task in two phases named Feature Extraction and Feature Identification. Various methods are available for extraction of a voice signal such as Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCCs), Linear Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (LFCCs), Linear Predictive Cepstral Coefficients (LPCC), Perceptual Linear Prediction Cepstral Coefficients (PLPCCs) etc. Similarly, modern methods available for identification include Vector Quantization (VQ), Hidden Markov Model (HMM), Gaussian Mixture Models (GMM) etc.In this paper, based on our survey on the grounds of noise reduction, computational time, accuracy and efficiency, we propose that an MFCC-GMM model is best suited for identifying a speaker.
