This paper details the signal processing techniques used to produce novel speech metrics for the quantitative assessment of dysarthric speech. A number of different processing methods are used to produce measures designed to aid speech therapists and patients alike in therapy and the assessment of speech quality. The three measures also have the potential for diagnosis of condition and tracking of trends in speech.
