Multi-microphone speech enhancement: An integration of a priori and data-dependent spatial information (2020)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
A speech signal captured by multiple microphones is often subject to a reduced intelligibility and quality due to the presence of noise and room acoustic interferences. Multi-microphone speech enhancement systems therefore aim at the suppression or cancellation of such undesired signals without substantial distortion of the speech signal. A fundamental aspect to the design of several multi-microphone speech enhancement systems is that of the spatial information which relates each microphone signal to the desired speech source. This spatial information is unknown in practice and has to be somehow estimated. Under certain conditions, however, the estimated spatial information can be inaccurate, which subsequently degrades the performance of a multi-microphone speech enhancement system.
