The fourth-order cumulant of speech signals with application to voice activity detection


This paper explores the fourth order cumulants (FOC) of the LPC residual of speech signals and presents a new algorithm for Voice Activity detection (VAD) based on the newly established FOC properties. Analytical expressions for the horizontal slice of the 4th cumulant as well as the kurtosis of voiced speech are derived based on a reported sinusoidal model… (More)
