Abstract
Recently, a new data collection was initiated within the RedDots project in order to evaluate text-dependent and text-prompted speaker recognition technology on data from a wider speaker population and with more realistic noise, channel and phonetic variability. This paper analyses our systems built for RedDots challenge - the effort to collect and compare the initial results on this new evaluation data set obtained at different sites. We use our recently introduced HMM based i-vector approach, where, instead of the traditional GMM, a set of phone specific HMMs is used to collect the sufficient statistics for i-vector extraction. Our systems are trained in a completely phraseindependent way on the data from RSR2015 and Libri speech databases. We compare systems making use of standard cepstral features and their combination with neural network based bottle-neck features. The best results are obtained with a scorelevel fusion of such systems.
