Voiceprint

PHONETICS: A voiceprint is a graphic display of a speakerís voice quality (e.g. a spectrogram). Some people claim that a personís voice is as individual as fingerprints. Voiceprints can be used to identify a speaker in legal cases (cf. forensic phonetics). Yet, the spectrographic features of voiceprints are difficult to compare and interpret.
