Biometric user authentication by voice is one of the most important functions of the information security. But, changes in the acoustic environment and communication channels create noise and various distortions in speech signals, whereby the recognition accuracy in such systems is considerably degraded. Therefore, removal of noise in speech signals is essential to improve the accuracy of speaker recognition. This paper proposes a method of adaptive noise reduction based on empirical wavelet transform, which is tested on speech signals with different noise levels (pp. 48-52).

Keywords: speech signal features, wavelets, empirical wavelet transform, discrete energy separation algorithm.
