Speech recognition systems have come to be used widely. When any speech recognition system is disturbed by surrounding noises, considerable reduction in the recognition rate is inevitable. It is much desired to develop noise reduction methods so that any speech recognition system can be used in realistic environments. We propose a novel scheme especially effective for reducing the noise generated in the vehicles. The reduction is achieved through image processing techniques applied to the corresponding spectrograms. Experiments have been conducted on speech sounds in the vehicles. The performances have been evaluated in terms of the output signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The proposed scheme has been compared with the conventional spectral subtraction method, and found to be promising especially for speeches corrupted with great amount of car noises.
