  • Patent number: 6772126
    Abstract: A system controller (106) is for transferring a low bit rate digital voice message. The system controller generates from an analog voice signal representing the voice message a set of speech model parameters, and generates a first derived set of speech model parameters from a first subset of the set of speech model parameters, the first derived set encoding the voice signal at a second voice quality and second vocoder rate that are less, respectively, than a first voice quality and vocoder rate. The system controller transmits (3610) the low bit rate-digital voice message comprising the first derived set of speech model parameters to a communication receiver (114). The communication receiver requests (3640) an incremental message when the quality of the voice message is unsatisfactory. The system controller generates and transmits (3555, 3650) an incremental message-and the communication receiver uses (3660) the incremental message to generate a higher quality voice message.

  • Patent number: 6496798
    Abstract: A system controller (106) includes a speech encoder (107) that encodes a low bit rate digital voice message. The speech encoder sets values of words of a header of the encoded message. The values of the words define a quantity of frames in the voice message, N, and define a vocoder rate used for the encoded message. The speech encoder sets a state of each indicator in each frame status field of N frame status fields that are transmitted after the header of the encoded message. The speech encoder assembles N frame data fields, wherein each of the frame data fields comprises a set of data words. The N frame data fields follow the N frame status fields. Each set of data words conforms to at least one of the vocoder rate and the states of the indicators. A decoder (3310) decodes the encoded low bit rate digital message.

Speech model parameters have been generated in a sequence of frames. The speech model parameters include quantized speech spectral parameter vectors. The speech encoder selects (1820) a first quantized speech spectral parameter vector as a current anchor vector, selects (1820, 1830) a second quantized speech spectral parameter vector located a predetermined number of frames (LMAX) from the current anchor vector as a target speech parameter vector, and perturbs (1840) the target speech parameter vector to derive a plurality (K) of perturbed speech parameter vectors.
