Speech Compression, Steganography, Discreet Wavelet Transform (DWT)
The performance of audio steganography compression system using discreet wavelet transform (DWT) is investigated. Audio steganography coding is the technology of transforming stego-speech into efficiently encoded version that can be decoded in the receiver side to produce a close representation of the initial signal (non compressed). Experimental results prove the efficiency of the used compression technique since the compressed stego-speech are perceptually intelligible and indistinguishable from the equivalent initial signal, while being able to recover the initial stego-speech with slight degradation in the quality .
