Abstract

This article introduces automatic speaker identification in telephone conferences. The idea is to make use of the fact that a corporate intranet or the Internet is available in parallel to the telephone network. This parallel data network is used for communicating information about participants and speakers in telephone conferences. All participants can see on their portable computer the names and still pictures of all other conference participants. The still picture and/or the name of the currently speaking participant is highlighted.
