  • Patent number: 5553134
    Abstract: An automated method for modifying a speech signal communicated over a telephone network by applying a gain factor in a telephone set before any side tone is added thereto. The gain factor is a function of a received signal indicative of the background noise at the location of the telephone set. The gain applied may be a function of both the background noise level and the original speech signal. Either a linear or a non-linear (e.g., compressed) amplification of the original speech signal may be performed, where a compressed amplification results in the higher level portions of the speech signal being amplified by a smaller gain factor than lower level portions. The speech signal may be separated into a plurality of subbands, each resultant subband signal being individually modified in accordance with the present invention.

  • Patent number: 5539806
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are disclosed for improving the clarity and intelligibility of incoming speech in a telephone connection. Improved sound quality is provided by automatically selecting, or enabling the selection of, an appropriate sound enhancement for a particular individual at a given telephone number. Sound enhancements applied to calls originating from or terminating at a given telephone station are determined on a call-by-call basis. The sound enhancement set at the beginning of a telephone call can be changed mid-call to a different sound enhancement. Thus, different occupants of a household may select their own sound enhancement, or may select no enhancement at all.

  • Patent number: 5524148
    Abstract: An automated method for modifying a speech signal in a telephone network by applying a gain factor which is a function of the level of background noise at a given destination, and transmitting the modified speech signal to the destination. The gain applied may be a function of both the background noise level and the original speech signal. Either a linear or a non-linear (e.g., compressed) amplification of the original speech signal may be performed, where a compressed amplification results in the higher level portions of the speech signal being amplified by a smaller gain factor than lower level portions. The speech signal may be separated into a plurality of subbands, each resultant subband signal being individually modified in accordance with the present invention. In this case, each subband speech signal is amplified by a gain factor based on a corresponding subband noise signal, generated by separating the background noise signal into a corresponding plurality of subbands.

  • Patent number: 4442540
    Abstract: A system for interpolating digital data signals to a frequency band above analog speech signals in a common transmission channel is disclosed. The system utilizes short time frequency analysis techniques to determine the cutoff frequency of the speech signal. Data signals temporarily held in storage within the system are thereafter modulated into an unused frequency band of the transmission channel above that needed for speech signals. The combined speech and data signals in the system are sent to a receiver which relays the respective speech and data signals to their appropriate locations. This system is compatible with digital signal processing techniques using Fast Fourier Transform Technology in conjunction with solid state logic elements.

  • Patent number: 4417102
    Abstract: Improved digital encoding of an input speech signal for transmission uses an adaptive low-pass filter and adaptive coder responsive to the total spectral energy of the input signal, thereby providing reduced coder bit rate at constant coder noise, or conversely reduced coder noise at constant bit rate.
