Speech Enhancement: Theory and Practice (Signal Processing and Communications)


Price: $ 111.63 Buy this book

The first book to provide comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of all major speech enhancement algorithms proposed in the last two decades, Speech Enhancement: Theory and Practice is a valuable resource for experts and newcomers in the field. The book covers traditional speech enhancement algorithms, such as spectral subtraction and Wiener filtering algorithms as well as state-of-the-art algorithms including minimum mean-squared error algorithms that incorporate signal-presence uncertainty and subspace algorithms that incorporate psychoacoustic models. The coverage includes objective and subjective measures used to evaluate speech quality and intelligibility.

Divided into three parts, the book presents the digital-signal processing and speech signal fundamentals needed to understand speech enhancement algorithms, the various classes of speech enhancement algorithms proposed over the last two decades, and the methods and measures used to evaluate the performance of speech enhancement algorithms. The text is supplemented with examples and figures designed to help readers understand the theory. MATLAB® implementations of all major speech enhancement algorithms and a speech database that can be used for evaluation of noise reduction algorithms are available for download on the book’s description page at the CRC Press website.

Providing clear and concise coverage of the subject, the author brings together a large body of knowledge about how human listeners compensate for acoustic noise when in noisy environments. This book is a valuable resource not only for engineers who want to implement the latest speech enhancement algorithms but also for speech practitioners who want to incorporate some of these algorithms into hearing aid applications for speech intelligibility and/or quality improvement.

A download is available for those that purchase this book and can be obtained by contacting nora.konopka@taylorandfrancis.com, providing proof of purchase.

I am using the book for speech enhancement. The book is really helpful. It contains all the important algorithms and also testing methods for determining the quality and intelligibility of different algorithms. Also, it has the code for all the methods. The codes are wrote well.

If you are a beginner in the field of speech processing research, this book will serve as one of your best references. For researchers that have been around for some time, this book is certainly a valuable asset that they have been missing. The problem with many speech processing books is that they are outdated, written by the pioneers from the field, but not updated as the research progressed. The biggest advantage that this book offers is the clarity with which most of the recent topics are discussed, by an author who is very well accomplished(in the Speech Processing Research community).
