Chapter 4 Voice Activity Detection Algorithms


New frontiers of speech technology are demanding increased levels of performance in many areas. In the advent of Wireless Communications new speech services are becoming a reality with the development of modern robust speech processing technology. Many researchers discussed about the ill effect of environmental noise on the system performance of speech processing. Abhijeet Sangwan et al (2002) discussed many issues associated with desirable aspects of Voice Activity Detection (VAD) algorithms based on a good decision rule, adaptability to background noise and low computational complexity for estimating the noise spectrum.
