Speech Dereverberation Based on Variance-Normalized Delayed Linear Prediction
This paper proposes a statistical model-based speech dereverberation approach that can cancel the late reverberation of a reverberant speech signal captured by distant microphones without prior knowledge of the room impulse responses. Expand

We generalizes existing dereverberation methods using subband-domain multi-channel linear prediction filters so that the resultant generalized algorithm can blindly shorten a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) impulse response between a set of unknown number of sources and a microphone array.

Suppression of Late Reverberation Effect on Speech Signal Using Long-Term Multiple-step Linear Prediction
A speech signal captured by a distant microphone is generally smeared by reverberation, which severely degrades automatic speech recognition (ASR) performance. Expand
