Re: speech degradation in a GSM network transmission

Hi Faten,

One lead: You may wish to examine the work of Bernard Guillemin and Catherine Watson in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at The University of Auckland, New Zealand.  They have been investigating the impact of GSM on forensic speaker identification.  An quick paper to examine is

B.J. Guillemin, C.I. Watson (2006) "Impact of the GSM AMR Speech Codec on Formant Information Important to Forensic Speaker Identification", Proceedings of the 11th Australian International Conference on Speech Science & Technology, University of Auckland, New Zealand. December 6-8, 2006.

Hi list,


I want to introduce some artificial degradation to a speech signal in order to simulate speech degradation in a GSM network transmission.

The addition of a background noise seems to be simple but I don't know which type or noise distribution I have to use.

I want also introduce frequency degradation and I have no idea about the way this must be done.

Can anyone advice me or send me some documentations about this topic?


Best Regards.
