This paper introduces a word boundary detection algorithm that works in a variety of noise conditions including what is commonly called the ‘cocktail party’ situation. The algorithm uses the direction of the signal as the main criterion for differentiating between desired-speech and background noise. To determine the signal direction the algorithm calculates estimates of the time delay between signals r eceived at two microphones. These time delay estimates together with estimates of the… CONTINUE READING
