We are happy to announce the release of the MSR Identity Toolbox: A MATLAB toolbox for speaker-recognition research. This toolbox contains a collection of MATLAB tools and routines that can be used for research and development in speaker recognition. It provides researchers with a test bed for developing new front-end and back-end techniques, allowing replicable evaluation of new advancements. It will also help newcomers in the field by lowering the “barrier to entry,” enabling them to quickly build baseline systems for their experiments. Although the focus of this toolbox is on speaker recognition, it can also be used for other speech related applications such as language, dialect, and accent identification. Additionally, it provides many of the functionalities available in other open-source speaker recognition toolkits (e.g., ALIZE ) but with a simpler design which makes it easier for the users to understand and modify the algorithms.
