Judging from the recoverable message rate from a linguistic perspective for typical speech signals, it is reasonable to say that the minimum lies somewhere around 100 bps. Current coders can produce good quality at 2 kbps and above, suggesting that there is plenty of room for future improvement. Classiﬁcation by Coding Techniques Waveform Coders An attempt is made to preserve the original shape of the signal waveform, and hence the resultant coders can generally be applied to any signal source.
Transmit ﬁlter coefﬁcients and scale factor to the decoder. Decoding Generate white noise sequence. Multiply the white noise samples by the scale factor. Construct the ﬁlter using the coefﬁcients from the encoder and ﬁlter the scaled white noise sequence. Output speech is the output of the ﬁlter. By repeating the above procedures for every speech frame, a time-varying ﬁlter is created, since its coefﬁcients are changed from frame to frame. Note that this overly simplistic scheme is for illustration only: much more elaboration is necessary to make the method useful in practice.
