Analysis of Linear Predictive Coding

Jennifer Jose, Smita Chopde


Linear predictive coding (LPC) is defined as a method for encoding an analog signal in which a particular value is predicted by a linear function of the past values of the signal. Human speech is produced in the vocal tract which can be approximated as a variable diameter tube. The linear predictive coding (LPC) model is based on a mathematical approximation of the vocal tract represented by this tube of a varying diameter. At a particular time, t, the speech sample s(t) is represented as a linear sum of the p previous samples. The most important aspect of LPC is the linear predictive filter which allows the value of the next sample to be determined by a linear combination of previous samples. This paper describes the quality of synthesized speech of a LPC model with varying the window shapes and window size.
