The recognition and training algorithms for autoregressive hidden Markov models were developed in order to solve the task of vocal fold pathology detection. Three databases were created and used for 3 vocal pathologies detection. During the experiments the proposed vocal tract pathology detection system based on autoregressive hidden Markov models and wide-range AFT mel-spectrum provides very high detection accuracy.
