What is Microsoft AI-based echo cancellation?
Echo cancellation mainly solves a frequent problem in which sound loops between your PC’s input and output devices, causing an echo effect as the sound repeats over and over. So with the help of artificial intelligence, Teams can be able to cancel or eliminate the echo sound without disturbing your original voice.
So if you are thinking how will this work and what if instead of echo sound, it cancels your own voice? Well, with the help of AI, it is very easy to detect the sound produced by the speaker and your original voice. So you can definitely be carefree while using Microsoft teams services.
What is de-reverberation?
This is very common issue that your voice becomes shallow mainly when you are away from your microphone because of the acoustics in your room. So to tackle this issue, de-reverberation feature is introduced to Microsoft teams. By using a machine learning model, this problem is tackled as it captures the audio as if you are in a close range of microphone and makes it clear.
