Abstract

Background. The low accuracy of recognition of speech commands is one of the main problems in practical implementation of systems for assessing psychogenic states. This is due to the use non-adaptive methods unstable to noise for processing complex speech signals. The article proposes a method of signal / pause segmentation to work in a noisy environment.
Materials and methods. In the development of the method we used: the method of adaptive processing of speech signals – complementary multiple decomposition into empirical modes (KMDE) and the method of differentiation based on the physiological aspect of speech formation and human hearing apparatus’ functional. 
Results. The article presents a block diagram of the method with detailed mathematical description. The advantages are shown in comparison with the known signaling / pause signaling / STE + ZCR, IE and MFCC.
Conclusions. The developed method provides an increase in the coefficient of actual detection by an average of 6%. A comparison of the study results allows us to conclude that the developed signal / pause segmentation method is recommended for practical application in psychogenic states assessment systems.
