Abstract: Recently we have proposed an approach for user-customized password speaker verification; in this approach, we combined a hybrid HMM/ANN model (used for utterance verification) and a GMM model (used for speaker verification). In this paper, we extend our investigations. First, we propose a new similarity measure that uses confidence measures developed in the HMM/ANN framework. Secondly, we analyze the contribution of each model using a weighted sum combination technique. Experiments conducted on a subset of the PolyVar database show that for a short password the performance of the combined system did not improve significantly compared to the performance using the GMM model alone, and that the HMM/ANN did not contribute much in the combined system. We discuss possible reasons for this.
