Auditory masking threshold estimation for broadband noise sources with application to speech enhancement

Abstract

This paper addresses issues encountered in the use of an Auditory Masking Threshold (AMT) for speech enhancement and proposes an algorithm to improve AMT estimation for broadband noise sources. We determined that while AMT estimation is fairly accurate, and hence an enhancement scheme based on AMT can suppress audible noise to a greater extent for low… (More)
