About this book
Bandwidth Extension of Speech Signals provides discussion on different approaches for efficient and robust bandwidth extension of speech signals while acknowledging the influence of noise corrupted real-world signals. The book describes the theory and methods for quality enhancement of clean speech signals and distorted speech signals such as those that have undergone a band limitation, for instance, in a telephone network. Problems and the respective solutions are discussed in regards to different approaches. The different approaches are evaluated and robustness issues for a real-time implementation are covered as well. The book includes topics related to speech coding, pattern- / speech recognition, speech enhancement, statistics and digital signal processing in general.
