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

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

Advances in electronic Speech Transmission offers an updated assessment of the sphere, together with subject matters akin to speech coding in heterogeneous conversation networks, wideband coding, and the standard review 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

  • Discusses themes reminiscent of 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 functions viewpoint

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

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

Example text

An enhanced brightness and clearness are often stated, describing the improvement in other words. On the other hand, voiced sounds have line spectra with a spacing fo , where fo is the fundamental frequency of the short-time periodic sound with period To = 1/fo . Especially for male voices, fo ∈ (60, 100) Hz may often occur, so that the telephone high-pass removes or strongly attenuates the first 3–5 harmonics; the fullness of the voice is thus lost, which (only) for certain dark vowels also increases the risk of confusion.

Extended Quality Scales As seen in the preceding section, the inclusion of processed wideband-speech signals into quality comparisons causes that part of the MOS scale which is used for the included narrowband examples to shrink. So, the discrimination becomes less fine. A natural solution seems to be an extension of the scale at its upper end. There are indeed scales applied in quality assessment with values up to ten or even an open upper end, in order to avoid the above-mentioned hesitation to give really high grades.

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. In their report, they define an articulation index as A = −c · log10 (1 − s) = −c · log10 (e) .
