An improved wavelet-based method is developed for extracting pitch information from noisy speech. It uses a modified spatial correlation function which is originally applied to wavelet-based signal denoising to improve the performance of pitch detection in a noisy environment. The modified spatial correlation function needed in the proposed pitch detection method makes use of an aliasing compensation algorithm to eliminate the aliasing distortion that arises from the downsampling and upsampling operations of the wavelet transform. As a consequence, this allows one to further increase the accuracy of pitch detection. It is shown in various experimental results that this new method gives a considerable performance improvement when compared with other conventional and wavelet-based methods.
