ARKAMYS ClearSpeech solution (Echo Cancellation and Noise Reduction), now integrates a best of breed feature developed by Dr. Nicolas Lopez, ARKAMYS ECNR Expert, called Dereverberation.
The Dereverberation software module uses one single microphone to accurately estimate and suppress reverberation, caused by the listening room (living room, car cabin, …), from voice recordings.
This module has been successfully showcased at the « Reverb Challenge » in Florence (IT) during the ICASSP Audio conference in May 2014.
For this benchmark, the Dereverberation module was used together with ARKAMYS Noise Reduction and it successfully improved the accuracy of a voice recognition system by up to 29.7% (expressed in Word Error Rate).
