In this paper, we present a simultaneous detection and estimation approach for speech enhancement. A detector for speech presence in the short-time Fourier transform domain is combined with an estimator, which jointly minimizes a cost function that takes into account both detection and estimation errors. Cost parameters control the tradeoff between speech distortion, caused by missed detection of speech components and residual musical noise resulting from false-detection. Furthermore, a modified decision-directed a priori signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) estimation is proposed for transient-noise environments. Experimental results demonstrate the advantage of using the proposed simultaneous detection and estimation approach with the proposed a priori SNR estimator, which facilitate suppression of transient noise with a controlled level of speech distortion.
