Jitter and shimmer are measures of the fundamental frequency and amplitude cycle-to-cycle variations, respectively. Both features have been largely used for the description of pathological voices, and since they characterise some aspects concerning particular voices, they are expected to have a certain degree of speaker specificity. In the current work, jitter and shimmer are successfully used in a speaker verification experiment. Moreover, both measures are combined with spectral and prosodic features using several types of normalisation and fusion techniques in order to obtain better verification results. The overall speaker verification system is also improved by using histogram equalisation as a normalisation technique previous to fusing the features by support vector machines.
