Dysarthria speech is the speech disorder which would be caused due to weakness of human muscles. The human with dysarthria disorder cannot speak normally whose speech will be very slow and congestive words which might be more difficult to understand. Thus it is required to create the environment where the speech of dysarthria disorder people can be recognized. This is done in our previous research work by introducing the method namely Hidden Markov Model based Speech Recognition (HMMSR). However this research work didn’t focus on accurate prediction and the echo noises presence in the speech signals. This would lead to inaccuracy in speech recognition. This is resolved by introducing the efficient dysarthria speech recognition framework namely Noise and Echo aware Dysarthria Speech Recognition Method (NE-DSRM). In this research work, Hybrid Least Mean Square-Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Inference System (LMS-ANFIS) has been used for preprocessing. This method will remove both echo and noises present in the speech signals to ensure the accurate prediction outcome. And then speech recognition is performed by comparing the dysarthria speech with the phonological speech based on which relevancy would be identified. The accuracy of speech recognition can be improved by introducing the SVM based learning methodology which can classify the dysarthria speech based on which more relevant matching can be done. The objective of the system is, after being trained, to identify and classify limited-vocabulary sets of speaker-dependent. The overall assessment of the research work is done in the matlab simulation environment from which it is proved that the proposed method NE-DSRM tends to have better performance than the existing research works.
