One of the most important schemes in the fundamental topic of speech enhancement is single-channel noise reduction in the time domain since most communication devices have only one microphone and the time-domain processing seems intuitive and natural. This approach has been very well studied in the literature (see [1] for example). In this chapter, we revisit this method from the perspective proposed in Chapter  2.
