Abstract

In the last few decades many papers have written about the analysis of the infant cry. The acoustic analysis has a shorter history than emotional, physiological, etc. investigations [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]. This paper deals with classical and new methods of acoustic analysis of the infant cry. The final goal is to detect hearing disorders according to the crying at the earliest possible moment. Classical acoustic methods were reproduced and compared with solutions, which were not available before. This paper most of all deals with the characteristics of the fundamental frequency of the cry in the time and in the frequency domain.
