Non-intrusive speech quality assessment with low computational complexity

Volodya Grancharov, David Y. Zhao, Jonas Lindblom, W. Bastiaan Kleijn

We describe an algorithm for monitoring subjective speech quality without access to the original signal that has very low computational and memory requirements. The features used in the proposed algorithm can be computed from commonly used speech-coding parameters. Reconstruction and perceptual transformation of the signal are not performed. The algorithm generates quality assessment ratings without explicit distortion modeling. The simulation results indicate that the proposed non-intrusive objective quality measure performs better than the ITU-T P.563 standard despite its very low computational complexity.
