In this paper, we present statistical approaches to enhance body-conducted unvoiced speech for silent speech communication. A body-conductive microphone called nonaudible murmur (NAM) microphone is effectively used to detect very soft unvoiced speech such as NAM or a whispered voice while keeping speech sounds emitted outside almost inaudible. However,(More)
The conversion method from Non-Audible Murmur (NAM) to ordinary speech based on the statistical voice conversion (NAM-toSpeech) has been proposed towards realization of “silent speech telephone.” Although NAM-to-Speech converts NAM to intelligible voices with similar quality to speech, there is still a large problem, i.e., difficulties of the F0 estimation(More)
