The objective of this work is to establish a single channel noise reduction algorithm for speech enhancement integrated in DSP systems. The main emphasis is on spectral subtraction. The chosen algorithm is based on a Minimum Mean Square Error Log Spectral Amplitude (MMSE-LSA) approach. One of the crucial tasks for good results, i.e. natural and intelligible speech in combination with well attenuated noise and low spectral distortion, is a balanced estimation and weighting of the noise magnitude spectrum.
