Abstract / truncated to 115 words (read the full abstract)

Parametric modelling of speech signals finds its use in various speech processing applications. Recently, publications concerning sinusoidal speech modelling have been increasingly appeared in scientific literature. The thesis is mainly devoted to the sinusoidal model with harmonically related component sine waves, i.e. the harmonic model. The main objective is to find new approaches to synthetic speech quality improvement. A novel method for speech spectrum envelope determination is introduced. This method uses a staircase envelope considering the spectral behaviour in voiced as well as unvoiced speech frames. The staircase envelope is smoothed by weighted moving average. The determined envelope is parametrized using autoregressive (AR) model or cepstral coefficients. It has been shown that the new method ...
