Speech Enhancement Techniques: Quality vs. Intelligibility

Milind U. Nemade and Satish K. Shah
Abstract—With the rapid advancements in industrial and technology applications, the demand from consumer for transmission and manipulation of data, primarily - speech, audio and images, are at its peak. The speech, being a fundamental way of communication for the humans, has been embedded in various essential applications like speech recognition, voice-distance-talk and other forms of personal communications. There are so many applications of speech still to be far from reality just because of lack of efficient and reliable noise removal mechanism and preserving or improving the intelligibility for the speech signals. The broad categories of speech enhancement techniques can be listed as speech filtering techniques, beam forming techniques and active noise cancellation methods. In this paper, an attempt has been stepped towards surveying the methodologies for speech improvement. It is also interesting to investigate, how these techniques affect the performance of various application systems like speech recognition and speech communication. Essentially, we also discuss about the types and sources of noise that can be considered in speech enhancements.

Index Terms—Enhancement, beamforming and active noise cancellation, single channel enhancement
