The reverberation time is one of the most prominent acoustic characteristics of an enclosure. Its value can be used to predict speech intelligibility, and is used by speech enhancement techniques to suppress reverberation. The reverberation time is usually obtained by analysing the decay rate of (i) the energy decay curve that is observed when a noise source is switched off, and (ii) the energy decay curve of the room impulse response. Estimating the reverberation time using only the observed… CONTINUE READING
