Discrimination of speech from nonspeeech in broadcast news based on modulation frequency features
We describe a content based speech discrimination algorithm in broadcast news based on the time-varying information provided by the modulation spectrum. Due to the varying degrees...

Combining localization cues and source model constraints for binaural source separation
We describe a system for separating multiple sources from a two-channel recording based on interaural cues and prior knowledge of the statistics of the underlying source signals. ...

Auditory-inspired sparse representation of audio signals
This article deals with the generation of auditory-inspired spectro-temporal features aimed at audio coding. To do so, we first generate sparse audio representations we call spik...

The Romanian speech synthesis (RSS) corpus: Building a high quality HMM-based speech synthesis system using a high sampling rate
This paper first introduces a newly-recorded high quality Romanian speech corpus designed for speech synthesis, called “RSS”, along with Romanian front-end text processing mo...

Role of modulation magnitude and phase spectrum towards speech intelligibility
In this paper our aim is to investigate the properties of the modulation domain and more specifically, to evaluate the relative contributions of the modulation magnitude and phas...

A multistage approach to blind separation of convolutive speech mixtures
We propose a novel algorithm for the separation of convolutive speech mixtures using two-microphone recordings, based on the combination of independent component analysis (ICA) an...

The importance of phase in speech enhancement
Typical speech enhancement methods, based on the short-time Fourier analysis-modification-synthesis (AMS) framework, modify only the magnitude spectrum and keep the phase spectru...

Perception of place of articulation for plosives and fricatives in noise
This study aims at uncovering perceptually-relevant acoustic cues for the labial versus alveolar place of articulation distinction in syllable-initial plosives {/b/,/d/,/p/,/t/} a...
