We propose a deep learning-based model for classifying pathological voices using a convolutional neural network and a feedforward neural network. The model uses combinations of heterogeneous parameters, including mel-frequency cepstral coefficients, linear predictive cepstral coefficients and higher-order statistics. We validate the accuracy of this model using the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI) voice disorder database and the Saarbruecken Voice Database (SVD). Our model achieved an accuracy of 99.3% for MEEI and 75.18% for SVD. This model achieved an accuracy that is 7.18% higher than that of competitive models in previous studies.
