Abstract:

This constitutes our final report on a research program aimed at the development of a high quality low data rate speech transmission system based on new types of speech modeling algorithms. Several such algorithms were developed and tested on simulated and real speech data. These algorithms have many desirable features including the capability of rapidly tracking time-varying model parameters. The best algorithm was used as the basis of a speech transmission system in order to test the quality of the speech models. The model parameters reflection coefficients together with pitch information and speech energy form a speech parameter vector to be transmitted and used to reconstruct the original speech. Several parameter quantization methods were considered to achieve the desired low bit rates. The various algorithms as well as the complete transmission system were coded and tested. Simulation results are very promising and the usefulness of our new approach for speech modeling has been successfully established. Author
