In this letter, we propose a new approach to estimate the degree of noise masking based on a sophisticated model for clean speech distribution. This measure, named as noise masking probability (NMP), is incorporated into the feature compensation technique to achieve robust speech recognition in noisy environments. Experimental results show that the proposed approach improves the performance of the baseline recognition system in the presence of various background noises.
