Abstract: Speech emotion recognition has become a challenging task in speech technology in order to ensure better and effective human-machine interaction. Improving the accuracy of speaker independent emotion recognition system by using a database containing the speech samples of limited number of utterances spoken by limited set of speakers is more challenging. This paper mainly discusses the use of integrated features and integrated models for improving the accuracy of the emotion recognition system. Integrated features are obtained by concatenating the probability with the normal system features. Integrated models are obtained by combining clustering and continuous density hidden Markov models. Integrated models with Mel frequency perceptual linear predictive cepstrum concatenated with probability provides better accuracy of 89% for recognising emotions using EMO-DB which contains speech samples of ten different utterances of ten different speakers in different emotions such as anger, boredom, disgust, fear, happy, neutral and sad by applying spectral analysis as a additional pre processing technique.
