Abstract

A procedure for the vectorisation and feature extraction of the human vocal tract is proposed. The raw data is obtained by high resolution 3D MRI. Because the amount of manual work in the data processing has been minimised, large datasets can be treated. The vectorised data can be used for both numerical as well as physical modelling of the vocal tract biophysics, including speech and applications in medicine.
