Voice Tips and Tricks

- Pitch, combined with intonation (the rise and fall of the voice in speaking), are important factors in classifying male versus female.

- Male classified voices tend to be low and within a narrow range of pitch (ie., relatively monotone).

- Female classified voices tend to be higher in pitch and fluctuate frequency to a much greater degree.

- Female classified voices often rise in frequency at the end of a sentence, as if asking a question.

How does it work?

This application uses a method of artificial intelligence, called machine learning, to determine the gender of a voice.

The program was trained on a dataset of 3,168 voice samples, split between male and female voices. By analyzing the acoustic properties of the voices, the program is able to achieve 89% accuracy on the test set.
