This paper describes the application of the notion of instantaneous frequency amplitude spectrum (IFAS) to discriminate voiced and unvoiced segment of speech signal. The classification procedures of speech signal into voiced and unvoiced is determined by using harmonicity measure acquired after evaluating instantaneous frequency amplitude spectrum. Several voicing decisions based on harmonicity measure are described to provide possible modifications including post-processing stage to improve the classifier accuracy. The performance of the proposed method is also compared against ESPS and AMDF to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
