Summary: 
In this letter, we propose a novel approach to feature compensation performed in the cepstral domain. Processing in the cepstral domain has the advantage that the spectral correlation among different frequencies is taken into consideration. By introducing a linear approximation with diagonal covariance assumption, we modify the conventional log-spectral domain feature compensation technique to fit to the cepstral domain. The proposed approach shows significant improvements in the AURORA2 speech recognition task.
