    This paper presents the application of a Voice Gender Normalization algorithm to the GSM Speech Codec and describes the refinements that can be made to the Codec as a result. By reducing the dynamic range of the speech signals entering the Codec gender specific adaptations can be made to the Codec to improve its performance in terms of subjective sound quality or its transmitted bit rate.
