Speech Enhancement by Noise Cancellation: A Review

Shraddha C, Chayadevi M L, M A Anusuya


It is observed that recognition rate of speech decreases, with the increase of noise in the background. Noise in the background as a tendency to decay the system’s robustness. This paper gives a brief survey on speech enhancements methods using various noise cancellation techniques for different SNR’s in a noisy environment.
