Effectiveness of ideal ratio mask for non-intrusive quality assessment of noise suppressed speech

The Ideal Ratio Mask (IRM) has proven to be very effective tool in many applications such as speech segregation, speech enhancement for hearing aid design and noise robust speech recognition tasks. The IRM provides information regarding the amount of signal power at each Time-Frequency (T-F) unit in a given signal-plus-noise mixture. In this paper, we… CONTINUE READING
