In this letter, we propose a simple and efficient method, called `Dual-CRC', to improve speech quality based on the list Viterbi algorithm (LVA) in the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS). We also employ the well-known joint source-channel decoding (JSCD) scheme together with LVA decoding to further improve the speech quality. Simulation results show that the two proposed decoders, the Dual-CRC LVA and the combination of the LVA and the JSCD, can significantly improve the speech quality for UMTS, especially in low signal-to-noise ratio and low mean opinion score regions.
