Speech detection

Image Number 18 for United States Patent #8131543.

The subject matter of this specification can be embodied in, among other things, a method that includes receiving an audio signal, determining an energy-independent component of a portion of the audio signal associated with a spectral shape of the portion, and determining an energy-dependent component of the portion associated with a gain level of the portion. The method also comprises comparing the energy-independent and energy-dependent components to a speech model, comparing the energy-independent and energy-dependent components to a noise model, and outputting an indication whether the portion of the audio signal more closely corresponds to the speech model or to the noise model based on the comparisons.
