Abstract: The paper presents results of compression using Run Length Encoding (RLE) scheme on speech signals of International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) database. These speech signals are compressed with no noise being added then they are compressed after adding some noise to them. It observed that RLE scheme gives high Compression Ratio (CR) for noisy speech signal compared to non noisy speech signal. The performance of RLE scheme on standard speech signal as well as noisy speech signal is compared with compression by Huffman coding. The obtained results indicate that RLE scheme gives high CR compared to CR by Huffman coding.

Keywords: speech compression; IPA; International Phonetics Alphabet; noise; corrupted signals; compression ratio; hearing quality; RLE; run length encoding; compressed speech signals; Huffman coding.
