In this paper, a modified version of an adaptive filtering technique, called fractional affine projection algorithm, is proposed for the dual-channel speech enhancement problem. The new adaptive filtering approach uses the fractional derivative together with the conventional first-order derivative of the mean-square error in its update equation. The update rule shows nonlinear behavior of step-size with respect to input signal. The proposed method is compared with the conventional methods of the least-mean-squares, normalized least-mean-squares, fractional least-mean-squares, normalized fractional least-mean-squares, and affine projection algorithms, both subjectively and objectively. The quality of noisy speech processed by applying different algorithms is evaluated objectively through the SNR and PESQ test measurements, and subjectively by conducting listening tests. Experimental results show that the fractional affine projection algorithm outperforms the conventional adaptive filtering methods in the sense of mean-square-error and quality of enhanced speech.
