Recently we described a variable-frame-rate LPC vocoder designed to transmit good quality speech over 2400 bps fixed-rate noisy channels with bit-error probabilities ranging up to 5% [3]. The basic idea was to lower the data rate by transmitting LPC parameters only when speech characteristics have changed sufficiently since the last transmission, and to employ the resulting bit-rate savings for protecting important transmission data against channel noise. This paper describes our continuing efforts which have concentrated on minimizing loss of synchronization between the receiver and the transmitter. In one approach, we emphasize heavy protection of header, and rapid resynchronization. Alternatively, we apply constraints which guarantee synchronization at a cost of some freedom in the selection of data for transmission. Results from the first approach are presented; results from both methods will be compared at the conference.
