A Kepstrum Approach to a Real-Time Speech Enhancement.
Mr Jeong proposed a robust method for improved performance of real-time speech enhancement and noise cancellation in a real reverberant environment. Hepresented the kepstrum approach, based on a fundamental theory of kepstrum analysis, and its application to a speech enhancement method. Kepstrum analysis was applied to system identification of unknown acoustic transfer functions between two microphones, with a modified application technique from conventional adaptive noise cancelling and beamforming. This kepstrum method provided a mathematical construct with FFT based processing and was independent of acoustic path model order. The research has shown that the front-end application of the kepstrum method to speech enhancement methods provides an improved performance in speech enhancement and noise cancellation with several favourable effects.
