A second matrix (Ws(k)) is calculated by using the restriction coefficients (Ci(k)) for restricting the separation filter and the first matrix, and separation filter coefficients (wsij(s)) are calculated by... Agent: Dickstein Shapiro LLP
20100030555 - Clipping detection device and method: A clipping detection device calculates an amplitude distribution of an input signal for each predetermined period, calculates a deflection degree of the distribution on the basis of the calculated amplitude distribution, and then detects clipping of a communication signal on the basis of the calculated deflection degree of the distribution.... Agent: Staas & Halsey LLP
20100030556 - Noise detecting device and noise detecting method: A difference signal calculating unit of a noise detecting device calculates a difference between the amplitudes of a residual signal at each sample timing and a residual signal at the preceding sample timing. A difference signal comparing unit determines whether or not an impulsive noise is present on the basis... Agent: Staas & Halsey LLP
20100030557 - Voice and text communication system, method and apparatus: The disclosure relates to systems, methods and apparatus to convert speech to text and vice versa. One apparatus comprises a vocoder, a speech to text conversion engine, a text to speech conversion engine, and a user interface. The vocoder is operable to convert speech signals into packets and convert packets... Agent: Qualcomm Incorporated
20100030558 - Method for determining the presence of a wanted signal component: This invention provides a method for determining, in a speech dialogue system issuing speech prompts, a score value as an indicator for the presence of a wanted signal component in an input signal stemming from a microphone, comprising the steps of: using a first likelihood function to determine a first... Agent: Sunstein Kann Murphy & Timbers LLP
20100030559 - System and method for an endpoint detection of speech for improved speech recognition in noisy environments: According to a disclosed embodiment, an endpointer determines the background energy of a first portion of a speech signal, and a cepstral computing module extracts one or more features of the first portion. The endpointer calculates an average distance of the first portion based on the features. Subsequently, an energy... Agent: Farjami & Farjami LLP
20100030560 - Speech recognition system, speech recognition method, and speech recognition program: Disclosed is a speech recognition system in which a common data processing means performs speech recognition of a speech captured by a speech input means to generate recognition result hypotheses which is not biased to one of applications and an adaptation data processing means regenerates recognition result hypotheses, using adaptation... Agent: Young & Thompson
20100030561 - Annotating phonemes and accents for text-to-speech system: A system that outputs phonemes and accents of texts. The system has a storage section storing a first corpus in which spellings, phonemes, and accents of a text input beforehand are recorded separately for individual segmentations of the words that are contained in the text. A text for which phonemes... Agent: Wolf Greenfield & Sacks, P.C.
20100030562 - Sound determination device, sound detection device, and sound determination method: A sound determination device (100) includes: an FFT unit (2402) which receives a mixed sound including a to-be-extracted sound and a noise, and obtains a frequency signal of the mixed sound for each of a plurality of times included in a predetermined duration; and a to-be-extracted sound determination unit (101... Agent: Wenderoth, Lind & Ponack L.L.P.
20100030563 - Apparatus and method for generating an ambient signal from an audio signal, apparatus and method for deriving a multi-channel audio signal from an audio signal and computer program: An apparatus for generating an ambient signal from an audio signal includes a compressor for lossy compression of a representation of the audio signal so as to obtain a compressed representation of the audio signal describing a compressed audio signal. The apparatus for generating the ambient signal further includes a... Agent: Schoppe, Zimmermann , Stockeler & Zinkler C/o Keating & Bennett, LLPPrevious industry: Data processing: structural design, modeling, simulation, and emulation
Next industry: Data processing: financial, business practice, management, or cost/price determination
