  • 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 acceptance

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 ebook can be of curiosity to complicated scholars, researchers, and different pros who have to brush up their wisdom during this field.Content:

2. Since the absolute power of unvoiced sounds is much lower than that of voiced ones (by some 15 dB or more, see Fig. 7), the loss of the strongest part is even worse. Thus, the discrimination between two fricatives becomes 16 Acc. importance 2 Speech-Transmission Quality: Wideband vs. 6: Accumulated importance of frequency components to speech articulation (exponential approximation of measurements in [Fletcher, Galt 1950]) difficult. This explains why the corresponding components are important but do not increase the average intelligibility too much.

13), similar thorough investigations for the wideband case are still on their way. As indicated above, and as seen in the above sections on coding and bandwidth extension too, particular effects and requirements beyond just a doubled sampling frequency are to be expected. In this book, more on current enhancement work is to be found in Chap. 5, on coding with variable rate and possible upper-band transmission in Chap. 8, and on bandwidth extensions aspects in Chap. 9. 5 Speech-Quality Assessment As mentioned in the Introduction, the quality of a speech sound can be validly described only by a human being, judging after auditory perception according to expectations and experiences.

First, linear distortions can be addressed by a measurement of the average frequency response, despite additive and non-linear effects [Sch¨ ussler, Dong 1990]. , by means of methods known from speech enhancement (see Sec. 2), additive artifacts like musical noise can be measured, or missing signal segments may be detected by means of techniques known from frame or packet-loss monitoring [Ludwig et al. 2003] and from error concealment (see Sec. 2 b). , “dullness” in the case of suppressed higher frequencies or “hissing background” in the case of wideband noise, depending on the dimensions defined before.
