The present paper describes a quality enhancement of speech corrupted by additive background noise in a single channel system. The proposed approach is based on the introduction of perceptual criteria using a frequency-weighting filter in a subtractive-type enhancement process. This newly developed algorithm allows for an automatic adaptation in the time and frequency of the enhancement system and finds a suitable noise estimate according to the frequency of the corrupted speech. Experimental results show that the proposed approach can efficiently remove additive noise related to various types of noise corruption.
