Re: Speech Quality Assessment Recent Developments

Dear All,

Currently ITU-T is running a benchmark called POLQA (Perceptual
Objective Listening Quality Assessment) from which a new standard will
be derived as the follow up of PESQ (Rec. P.862).
Major new items:
1) Superwideband speech (max 14 kHz audio bandwith)
2) Impact of a wide range of new types of distortions
3) Impact of global play back level

Some of my recent work contains new ideas, see references below.

Hello List,

I am looking for information or pointers to any major developments in
the area of objective speech quality assessment in recent years i.e.

Also, if anyone knows the latest plans of the ITU on this topic I would
be most grateful if that information could be passed on.

Thanks in advance.
