The Voice Activity Detection Algorithm Based on Spectral Entropy and High-Order Statistics
The voice activity detection is one of the key technologies of variable rate speech coding. The development of speech coding technology requires higher performance of the detection. Based on the analysis of spectral entropy and high-order statistics of the basic definition and property of the foundation, this article proposes a voice activity detection algorithm which combines spectral entropy with high-order statistics. The algorithm can effectively detect the speech and non-speech segments, and can get reasonable results in a complex background noise environment.
