Abstract: The evidence have shown that speech change with age and the automatic speech recognition systems needs adaptation to older voices. Most of the acoustic studies about the age effects on speech production have focused on static approaches to obtain the vowel formants. However, vowel formant dynamics may also be important to characterize vowel quality and the age related changes. In this position paper the authors argue for the need to increase the use of dynamic information in acoustic studies. Among the main arguments, we can state that: speech is inherently dynamic; dynamic vowel formants improve the classification of vowels and dialects and play an important role in vowel perception; nowadays better tools allow to go beyond analysis of snapshots.
