This study investigates a band extension technique for narrow-band telephony speech. The proposed technique employs full wave rectification that nonlinearly generates high-band overtones from the low band. In order to improve the conventional technique, this study investigates a frame-by-frame gain control based on the estimation of gain parameter from narrow-band telephony speech. A subjective evaluation indicates that the proposed technique outperforms the conventional technique.
