In this paper, we propose a new feature extraction method based on higher-order local auto-correlation (HLAC) and Fisher weight map (FWM). Widely used MFCC features lack temporal dynamics. To solve this problem, 35 types of local auto-correlation features are computed within two-dimensional local regions. These local features are accumulated over more global regions by weighting high scores on the discriminative areas where the typical features among all phonemes are well expressed. This score map is called Fisher weight map. We verified the effectiveness of the HLAC and FWM through vowel recognition and total phoneme recognition.
