Lecture  Abstract

We  cast the classical speech deriverberation problem into a regression setting by  mapping log power spectral features of reverberant speech to time-delayed  features of anechoic speech. Depending on the reverberation time of the  acoustic environment we found that different signal processing parameters are  needed to deliver a good quality for deriver berated speech. Furthermore,  reverberation-time-aware DNN training and decoding procedures can be designed  to optimize the deriverberation performance across a wide range of reverberation  times. In addition, a single DNN can also be trained to perform simultaneous  beam forming and deriverberation for microphone array speech. Furthermore, as a  side benefit, using DNN-based speech deriverberation as a pre-processor in the  REVERB Challenge automatic speech recognition (ASR) task, we get the lowest  word error rate without retraining the deriverberation front-end and the ASR  back-end. It is expected the ASR accuracy and robustness could still be  improved with joint training of an integrated deriverberation-ASR system.
