Audio Features from the Wav2Vec 2.0 Embeddings for the ACM Multimedia 2022 Stuttering Challenge

Abstract

The ACM Multimedia 2022 Stuttering Challenge is to determine the stuttering-related class of a speech segment. There are seven stuttering-related classes and an eighth garbage class. For this purpose, we have investigated the Wav2Vec 2.0 deep neural network to extract audio features from Transformer embeddings. Experiments were conducted on a part of the Kassel State of Fluency Corpus (KSoF). First, we introduced 21 functionals allowing to define two large composite audio feature: the first one set called W2V2 Basic audio-feature set (193,536 features) from the Base version of Transformer embeddings and the second one called W2V2 Large audio-feature set (516, 096 features) from the Large version of Transformer embeddings. Some functionals aim at estimating the spatial variability (e.g., mean, standard deviation, quartiles) and others aim at the temporal variability (e.g., linear regression slope). Then, each composite audio feature set have been splitted into a set of audio feature sets by grouping audio features by functional and by layer. Then, the most discriminant audio feature sets have been selected from these audio feature sets. Finally, two audio features sets specializing in stuttering speech have been developed and assessed: W2V2 Advanced audio-feature set (9,984 features) and W2V2 Large Advanced audio-feature set (15,360 features). Experiments have shown an improvement of 9.3% to the first one and 11.9% for the second one on the Test set compared to the official baseline of the Challenge (40.4%).
