In this paper, we investigated the modeling of the pathological features of the influenza disease on the human speech. The presented work is novel research based on a real database and a new combination of previously used methods, discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and linear prediction coding (LPC). Three verification system experiments, Normal/Influenza, Smokers/Influenza, and Normal/Smokers, were studied. For testing the proposed pathological system, several classification scores were calculated for the recorded database, from which we can see that the proposed method achieved very high scores, particularly for the Normal with Influenza verification system. The performance of the proposed system was also compared with other published recognition systems. The experiments of these schemes show that the proposed method is superior. View Full-Text
