New PDF release: Pre-Processing of Noisy Speech for Voice Coders

By Agarwal T.

Exact Linear Prediction Coefficient (LPC) estimation is a valuable requirement in low bitrate voice coding. less than harsh acoustic stipulations, LPC estimation can turn into unreliable. This leads to bad caliber of encoded speech and introduces tense artifacts. the aim of this thesis is to enhance and try out a two-branch speech enhancement preprocessing method. the program includes denoising blocks. One block will improve the degraded speech for actual LPC estimation. the second one block increases the perceptual caliber of the speech to be coded. The objectives of this learn are two-fold-to layout the second one block, and to match the functionality of different denoising schemes in all the branches. try effects convey that the two-branch procedure provides larger perceptual caliber of coded speech over traditional one-branch (i.e., one denoising block) speech enhancement strategies lower than many noisy environments.

Exact Linear Prediction Coefficient (LPC) estimation is a vital requirement in low bitrate voice coding. below harsh acoustic stipulations, LPC estimation can develop into unreliable. This leads to negative caliber of encoded speech and introduces tense artifacts. the aim of this thesis is to boost and try a two-branch speech enhancement preprocessing process.

Sample text

This section briefly looks at some of the limitations of noise suppression algorithms. Since, the noise variance is obtained as an estimate, clean speech cannot be exactly recovered. As noted earlier, proper estimation of noise variance is heavily dependent on accurate VAD decisions. If a frame is mistaken to be noise only, it will lead to signal cancellation. If a frame is mistaken to be high in speech energy (thus misclassifying it as clean speech segment), on the other hand, it might lead to incomplete speech enhancement.

The value of the voicing strength, per band, is considered correct if there is no bit inversion. The result is averaged only on frames where speech is present, [38]. Once again, larger values are indicative of better efficiency of speech enhancement techniques. 7 Summary This chapter focussed on derivation and study of speech enhancement techniques deployed in the frequency domain. The EVRC noise suppression block, MMSE-STSA and MMSELSA were studied in some detail. Some of the limitations (such as musical noise and timbre changes) of noise suppression schemes was also looked at.

Rating Speech Quality Level of Distortion 5 4 3 2 1 Excellent Good Fair Poor Bad Imperceptible Just perceptible, but not annoying Perceptible and slightly annoying Annoying, but not objectionable Very annoying and objectionable The MOS ratings are reliable as they are based on human responses and perception. A large number of listeners is required, so that a reasonable assessment can be made about system performance. This can be time consuming and expensive. Hence, various objective measures have been developed that are aimed at returning the same result as would have been returned by exhaustive subjective testing.
