Speech enhancement by adaptive Wiener filtering based on cumulant AR modelling

E. Masgrau, J. Salavedra, AsunciĆ³n Moreno, A. Ardanuy

In this paper we study some speech enhancement algorithms based on the iterative Wiener method due to Lim and Oppenheim [1], but where the AR spectral estimation of the speech is carried out using a third order cumulant analysis. This work extends some preceding papers due to the authors, providing a detailed analytical study of the convergence of the iterative algorithms. This analysis allows to understand the behaviour of the original [1] and the proposed cumulant algorithms, providing some insigths and suggestions to develop new and improved algorithms. An exhaustive empirical analysis establishs that the hybrid algorithm presented in [3] by the authors outperforms the original correlation algorithm, specially at low SNR largerly.
