The effect of stress on mental and physical health is very concerning making it a fascinating and socially valuable field of study nowadays. Although a number of stress markers have been deployed, there are still issues involved with using these kinds of approaches. By developing a speech-based stress detection system, it could solve the problems faced by other currently available methods of detecting stress since it is a non-invasive and contactless approach. In this work, a fusion of Teager Energy Operator (TEO) and Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCC) namely Teager-MFCC (T-MFCC) are proposed as the speech features to be extracted from speech signals in recognizing stressed emotions. Since stressed emotions affect the nonlinear components of speech, TEO is applied to reflect the instantaneous energy of the components. Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) classifier is used with the proposed T- MFCC features on the Ryerson Audio-Visual Database of Emotional Speech and Song (RAVDESS) corpus. The proposed method (T-MFCC) had shown a better performance with classification accuracies of 95.83% and 95.37% for male and female speakers respectively compared to the MFCC feature extraction technique which achieves 84.26% (male) and 93.98% (female) classification accuracies.
