Automatic voice recognition system aims to limit fraudulent access to sensitive areas as labs. Our primary objective of this paper is to increase the accuracy of the voice recognition in noisy environment of the Microsoft Research (MSR) identity toolbox. The proposed system enabled the user to speak into the microphone then it will match unknown voice with other human voices existing in the database using a statistical model, in order to grant or deny access to the system. The voice recognition was done in two steps: training and testing. During the training a Universal Background Model as well as a Gaussian Mixtures Model: GMM-UBM models are calculated based on different sentences pronounced by the human voice (s) used to record the training data. Then the testing of voice signal in noisy environment calculated the Log-Likelihood Ratio of the GMM-UBM models in order to classify user's voice. However, before testing noise and de-noise methods were applied, we investigated different MFCC features of the voice to determine the best feature possible as well as noise filter algorithm that subsequently improved the performance of the automatic voice recognition system.
