Abstract [en]

Based on two well-known auditory models, it is investigated whether the squared error between an original signal and a phase-distorted signal is a perceptually relevant measure for distortions in the Fourier phase spectrum of periodic signals obtained from speech. Both the performance of phase vector quantizers and the direct relationship between the squared error and two perceptual distortion measures are studied. The results indicate that for small values the squared error correlates well to the perceptual measures. However, for large errors, an increase in squared error does not, on average, lead to an increase in the perceptual measures. Empirical rate-perceptual distortion curves and listening tests confirm that, for low to medium codebook sizes, the average perceived distortion does not decrease with increasing codebook size when the squared error is used as encoding criterion.
