In this letter, we propose a novel acoustic echo suppression (AES) technique based on soft decision in a frequency domain. The proposed approach provides an efficient and unified framework for such procedures as AES gain computation, AES gain modification using soft decision, and estimation of relevant parameters based on the same statistical model(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel approach to improve the performance of minima controlled recursive averaging (MCRA) based on a conditional maximum a posteriori (MAP) criterion. From an investigation of the MCRA scheme, it is discovered that MCRA method cannot take full consideration of the inter-frame correlation of voice activity since the noise power(More)
This paper presents a novel approach to single channel speech enhancement in noisy environments. Widely adopted noise reduction techniques based on the spectral subtraction are generally expressed as a spectral gain depending on the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) [1]–[4]. As the estimation method of the SNR, the well-known decision-directed (DD) estimator of(More)
In this letter, we propose a novel approach to noise power estimation for robust speech enhancement in noisy environments. From investigation of the state-of-the-art techniques for noise power estimation, it is discovered that the previously known methods are accurate mostly either during speech absence or speech presence, but none of it works well in both(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel voice activity detection (VAD) algorithm using global speech absence probability (GSAP) based on Teager energy (TE) for speech enhancement. The proposed method provides a better representation of GSAP, resulting in improved decision performance for speech and noise segments by the use of a TE operator which is employed to(More)
In this letter, we propose effective feature vectors to improve the performance of voice activity detection (VAD) employing a support vector machine (SVM), which is known to incorporate an optimized nonlinear decision over two different classes. To extract the effective feature vectors, we present a novel scheme that combines the a posteriori SNR, a priori(More)

In this paper, we propose a novel frequency-domain approach to double-talk detection (DTD) based on the Gaussian mixture model (GMM). In contrast to a previous approach based on a simple and heuristic decision rule utilizing time-domain crosscorrelations, GMM is applied to a set of feature vectors extracted from the frequency-domain cross-correlation(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel double-talk detection (DTD) technique based on a soft decision in the frequency domain. The proposed method provides an efficient procedure to detect the double-talk situation by the use of the global near-end speech presence probability (GNSPP) and voice activity detection (VAD) of the near-end and far-end signal.(More)
