An effective voice activity detection (VAD) algorithm is proposed for improving speech recognition performance in noisy environments. The proposed speech/pause discrimination method is based on a hard-decision clustering approach built on a set of subband log-energies and noise prototypes that define a cluster. Detecting the presence of speech (a new cluster) is achieved using a basic sequential ...
