If extra space is required, please staple sheets to exam. Also, please clearly mark your flnal answers. Good luck! 1. Figure 1 shows the spectrum of a steady state vowel. The sampling frequency is known to be F s =8 kHz. Figure 1: Spectrum of a steady state vowel. (a) Is the spectrum provided in Figure 1 an example of narrowband or wideband analysis? Please explain your answer. (b) What is the fundamental frequency of the speaker? Is the speaker most likely a male or female? (c) Assume a rectangular analysis window was used to obtain the spectrum in Figure 1. What is the duration of the window in seconds? (d) Table 1 provides average formant frequencies for a number of steady state vowels for male and female speakers. Based on your answer from part b , which of the vowels does the spectrum in Figure 1 most likely correspond to? 1 Table 1: Average formant frequencies of steady state vowels for male and female speakers. Male Female Vowel F 1 F 2 F 1 F 2 U 440 Hz 1020 Hz 470 Hz 1160 Hz i 270 Hz 2290 Hz 310 Hz 2790 Hz a 730 Hz 1090 Hz 850 Hz 1220 Hz u 300 Hz 870 Hz 370 Hz 950 Hz " 530 Hz 1840 Hz 610 Hz 2330 Hz 2 Answer : (a) Figure 1 is an example of narrowband analysis since the spectrum shows high spectral...
