  • Publication number: 20210035595
    Abstract: An equalizer of a noise-reduction apparatus amplifies a predetermined amplification frequency band of a sending sound signal so as to generate an adjustment sending sound signal. A noise estimator estimates a noise included in the adjustment sending sound signal generated by the equalizer so as to generate an estimated noise signal. A noise level adjuster adjusts a level of the estimated noise signal generated by the noise estimator, in a predetermined adjustment frequency band, so as to generate an adjusted noise signal. A noise reducer reduces the noise signal included in the adjustment sending sound signal generated by the equalizer, utilizing the adjusted noise signal generated by the noise level adjuster.

  • Publication number: 20200395009
    Abstract: In a sound signal processing apparatus, a communication part receives a far-end sound signal from a smartphone serving as a sound source. A correlation value calculator calculates a correlation value indicative of a correlation between the far-end sound signal and a sending sound signal that includes an echo signal deriving from the far-end sound signal. When the correlation value is equal to or smaller than a predetermined suppression threshold, a determiner determines to suppress the far-end sound signal. When the determiner has determined to suppress the far-end sound signal, a suppressor suppresses the far-end sound signal, and outputs the suppressed far-end sound signal to a sound volume adjuster.
