Speech coding system using variable threshold values for noise reduction

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4918734.

A speech coding system includes apparatus for generating a variable threshold dependent upon the power of an input speech signal, and a comparator for comparing the power of the input speech signal with the variable threshold value to generate a discriminating signal for discriminating between a period when a speech continues and a period when the speech pauses, to change the coding operation for the input speech signal in accordance with the level of the discriminating signal, thereby forming voiced and unvoiced frames independently of each other.
