By Dr. Rainer Martin, Prof Ulrich Heute, Christiane Antweiler

Speech processing and speech transmission know-how are increasing fields of energetic examine. New demanding situations come up from the 'anywhere, every time' paradigm of cellular communications, the ever present use of voice verbal exchange structures in noisy environments and the convergence of communique networks towards net established transmission protocols, resembling Voice over IP. thus, new speech coding, new enhancement and blunder concealment, and new caliber overview equipment are rising.

Advances in electronic Speech Transmission offers an updated evaluate of the sphere, together with subject matters similar to speech coding in heterogeneous verbal exchange networks, wideband coding, and the standard evaluation of wideband speech.

  • presents an perception into the most recent advancements in speech processing and speech transmission, making it an important connection with these operating in those fields

  • bargains a balanced evaluate of know-how and purposes

  • Discusses issues akin to speech coding in heterogeneous communications networks, wideband coding, and the standard review of the wideband speech

  • Explains speech sign processing in listening to tools and man-machine interfaces from purposes standpoint

  • Covers speech coding for Voice over IP, blind resource separation, electronic listening to aids and speech processing for computerized speech attractiveness

Advances in electronic Speech Transmission serves as a necessary hyperlink among the fundamentals and the kind of know-how and functions (prospective) engineers paintings on in labs and academia. The e-book can also be of curiosity to complicated scholars, researchers, and different pros who have to brush up their wisdom during this field.Content:

Example text

Some of the observations found in these studies lead, in [Paulus 1996], [Paulus, Schnitzler 1996], to the idea of wideband-speech coding in two bands, though with unequal bandwidths. 8: Bandwidth expansion within a narrowband-speech transmission system frequency band below Bn , but also above 4 kHz. The spectral shape becomes less crucial above 6 kHz, where mainly a gain factor is needed, and only unvoiced sounds show components at all. These findings, confirmed by investigations in [Paulus 1996], also comply with the good results of an approach in [Dietrich 1984], where the full band Bw is transmitted and then augmented by artificial expansion up to 12 kHz.

722 1993]. Beyond the larger band width, the reduction of allowed in-band variation is obvious, in comparison with Fig. 2. 1 Wideband-Speech Intelligibility and Sound Quality Indeed, speech with this more than doubled bandwidth is found to have a much more natural and full sound. A calculation based on the model spectrum of Fig. 11 % by an ideal 50 Hz high-pass filter. 4 dB show a much better match. Moreover, a closer look to the results in [Fletcher, Galt 1950] reveals that a larger bandwidth is indeed helpful also in the sense of intelligibility.

A very similar approach was followed in [Epps, Holmes 1998]. In [Jax 2002], the problem was revisited, with a different basis. The history of succeeding speech segments was taken into account by means of a hidden Markov model, a statistical estimation was applied, and its aim and limitations were formulated via the information-theoretic concept of the trans-information between the measured narrowband signal description and the wideband counterpart to be concluded from it. A considerable quality improvement was reported [Jax, Vary 2002].
