This research suggests an efficient idea that is better suited for speech processing applications for retrieving the accurate pitch from speech signal in noisy conditions. For this objective, we present a fundamental frequency extraction algorithm and that is tolerant to the non-stationary changes of the amplitude and frequency of the input signal. Moreover, we use an accumulated power spectrum instead of power spectrum, which uses the shorter sub-frames of the input signal to reduce the noise characteristics of the speech signals. To increase the accuracy of the fundamental frequency extraction we have concentrated on maintaining the speech harmonics in their original state and suppressing the noise elements involved in the noisy speech signal. The two stages that make up the suggested fundamental frequency extraction approach are producing the accumulated power spectrum of the speech signal and weighting it with the average magnitude difference function. As per the experiment results, the proposed technique appears to be better in noisy situations than other existing state-of-the-art methods such as Weighted Autocorrelation Function (WAF), PEFAC, and BaNa.
