Abstract

Voice Activity Detection (VAD) is used to detect voiced and unvoiced segments of a speech signal. The output of a VAD is a voiced/unvoiced decision, which may be used to control other algorithms such as Automatic Gain Control. Many VAD algorithms are complicated, using frequency domain analysis and other computationally intensive operations. Computationally simple algorithms are needed for real-time applications.
