Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) A bone-conductive microphone which transforms bone-transmitted speech sounds through skull into electronic signals has two advantages. One is to operate in hands free mode, and another is to be anti-noise. Therefore, it is expected to match the man-machine interface for wearable computers.
Here, we examined and analyzed the possibility of a speaker identification system with the logarithmic power spectrum of air and bone-transmitted speech sounds to 5 Japanese vowels. This paper shows that the bone transmitted speech sounds based system gives better performance. Further, it refers to the possibility of finding the threshold tone between falsetto and modal (non-falsetto) singing voices.
