A modular approach to speech enhancement with an application to speech coding

  title={A modular approach to speech enhancement with an application to speech coding},
  author={Anthony J. Accardi and Richard V. Cox},
Ephraim and Malah's MMSE-LSA speech enhancement algorithm, while robust and effective, is difficult to tune and adjust for the tradeoff between noise reduction and distortion. We suggest a means of generalizing this design, which allows for other estimators besides the MMSE-LSA to be used within the same supporting framework. When a modified version of Ephraim and Van Trees's spectral domain constrained signal subspace estimator is used in this manner, we obtain a system with greater… CONTINUE READING
