Modern speech coding schemes have been developed to address the demand for economical spoken language telecommunication of acceptable quality. A variety of speech coding algorithms have been described, which compress speech to facilitate efficient transmission of spoken language over communication networks [2,3,4]. Most such speech coding algorithms are lossy in the sense that the "processed" speech is not identical to the original speech. As a result, some distortion is invariably introduced with any lossy speech coding strategy. For this reason, candidate coders undergo detailed evaluation to ensure that the associated speech output is of acceptable quality .
