Improved automatic speech recognition (ASR) in babble noise conditions continues to pose major challenges. In this paper, we propose a new local binary pattern (LBP) based speech presence indicator (SPI) to distinguish speech and non-speech components. Babble noise is subsequently estimated using recursive averaging. In the speech enhancement system(More)
In this paper, 1-D Local binary patterns (LBP) are proposed to be used in speech signal segmentation and voice activation detection (VAD)and combined with hidden Markov model (HMM) for advanced speech recognition. Speech is firstly de-noised by Adaptive Empirical Model Decomposition (AEMD), and then processed using LBP based VAD. The short-time energy of(More)
