In the area of voice recognition, soft computing technique is a prominent method to identify and cluster speaker variability’s in the speech signal. But whenever the signal is convoluted by a noisy signal standard FCM method fails to give the good results. To overcome this, Kernel FCM (KFCM) is used in this paper. PCA helps in reducing the features of convoluted signal. The recognition results are compared with and without applying PCA using KFCM function and the same is presented for word recognition rate.
