Entropy and Speech

In this thesis, we study the representation of speech signals and the estimation of information-theoretical measures from observations containing features of the speech signal. The main body of the

Linear Predic 7. Linear Prediction

Linear prediction plays a fundamental role in all aspects of speech. Its use seems natural and obvious in this context since for a speech signal the value of its current sample can be well modeled as

Improvement of the Linear Predictive Coding with Windowed Autocorrelation

The proposed method is thought to be preferable to the conventional technique as far as the fidelity is concerned and in a separate study of speaker-dependent speech recognition test for 50 isolated words pronounced by 40 people, it yielded better performance.

In this article, we use some spectral properties of polynomials presented in [1] and map an auto-correlation sequence to a set of Line Spectral Frequencies(LSFs) and reflection coefficients. This

Introduction to Speech Processing

In this brief introduction, some major highlights in the history of speech processing are outlined and the reader is introduced to the various parts of this handbook.

Linear Predictive Coding and the Internet Protocol

This is the story of the development of linear predictive coded (LPC) speech and how it came to be used in the first successful packet speech experiments and addresses some of the common assumptions made when modeling random signals.

Implementing Linear Predictive Coding based on a statistical model for LTE fronthaul

It is found that, if LPC is applied properly on the LTE, it is possible to compress data samples efficiently and transmit them from the BBU to the RRH with fewer bits.

On the Predictability of Long-Range Dependent Series

This paper points out that the predictability analysis of conventional time series may in general be invalid for long-range dependent (LRD) series since the conventional mean-square error (MSE) may

This dissertation presents a framework for describing and understanding the experience of voices in acousmatic electroacoustic music and related genres. The framework is developed with a phenomenol



Adaptive predictive coding of speech signals

Preliminary studies suggest that the binary difference signal and the predictor parameters together can be transmitted at approximately 10 kilobits/second which is several times less than the bit rate required for log-PCM encoding with comparable speech quality.

A code-excited linear predictive coder in which the optimum innovation sequence is selected from a code book of stored sequences to optimize a given fidelity criterion, indicating that a random code book has a slight speech quality advantage at low bit rates.

A Mathematical Theory of Communication

It is proved that the authors can get some positive data rate that has the same small error probability and also there is an upper bound of the data rate, which means they cannot achieve the data rates with any encoding scheme that has small enough error probability over the upper bound.

Speech Analysis and Synthesis by Linear Prediction of the Speech Wave

We describe a procedure for efficient encoding of the speech wave by representing it in terms of time-varying parameters related to the transfer function of the vocal tract and the characteristics of

Extended overlap-add and -save methods for multirate signal processing

New sampling rate conversion methods are proposed by extending the OLA and OLS and eliminating the redundancy caused by the conversion by discussing a rate conversion with the DFT-domain approach.

A new model of LPC excitation for producing natural-sounding speech at low bit rates

This paper describes a new approach to the excitation problem that does not require a priori knowledge of either the voiced-unvoiced decision or the pitch period, and minimizes a perceptual-distance metric representing subjectively-important differences between the waveforms of the original and the synthetic speech signals.

The criterion to be used for predictors for the purpose of predictive coding is defined: that predictor is optimum in the information theory (IT) sense which minimizes the entropy of the average error-term distribution.

Improved quantizer for adaptive predictive coding of speech signals at low bit rates

This method of quantization not only improves the speech quality by accurate quantization of the predicted residual when its amplitude is large but also allows encoding of the prediction residual at bit rates below 1 bit/sample.

Digital signal processing in communication systems

This hands-on treatment of DSP will help communications engineers upgrade their skills in digital signal processing and make a smooth transition into the design of more advanced systems, and meets the needs of students who want to bolster their knowledge in communications.
