From the past years, researchers have showed a very interest in the speech recognition systems based on the emotions. Mainly the research has been done with the aim to bring closer both human and computer with each other by recognizing mood swings. In the recognizing process we must know how to represent the emotions on the basis of some features like sad, happy etc. When the verbal content is well recognized on the speaker’s emotion, a promising enhancement of such systems would come. So recognition in speech is a crucial step. In the proposed work speech emotions will be recognized using hybridization of GFCC (Gammatone Frequency Cepstral Coefficients) and BPNN (Back Propagation Neural Network). The whole simulation will be done in the MATLAB environment to check the comparison result.
