What is CLEAR?

The CLEAR Lab researches into methods for improving the intelligibility and quality of speech signals that have become corrupted with noise or distorted by transmission. CLEAR is a research project run jointly by Imperial College London (Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering) and University College London (Department of Speech, Hearing and Phonetic Sciences). CLEAR is funded by the UK Home Office. More details ...
