Dolby is looking to help your audio and video calls sound as clear as possible by optimizing microphone and speaker performance. It has announced a tool called Dolby Voice for PCs, which it says removes unwanted background noise and echoes, while automatically adjusting levels for voices that are quiet or far away from a microphone.
Voice calls with several participants can get somewhat chaotic if people are talking over each other, particularly given that many PCs only support mono-based communications. However, if your conference call app offers stereo audio, Dolby says it can separate the voices to make them clearer and more natural-sounding. The company claims Dolby Voice for PCs can also improve speech recognition intelligibility for voice assistants.
