Laurel Carney Receives STTR Grant with Omnispeech

December 11, 2014

The Carney Lab has received an STTR Grant titled "Speech Enhancement Based on Auditory Coding of Voiced Signals."

This project will test the feasibility of a novel speech-enhancement strategy based on recent physiological and modeling studies. The lab is joining forces with a small company, Omnispeech LLC, which has expertise in developing algorithms for speech enhancement for cell phone applications. The long-term goal is to develop signal-processing algorithms that will enhance speech in noisy environments for listeners with normal hearing or with hearing loss. In addition to cell phones, other applications could include hearing-aids or other assistive devices.
