This paper presents a simple differential speech signal coding algorithm, based on backward adaptation. The considered algorithm is executed in frame by frame manner, by implementing predictive and adaptive quantization techniques. Both prediction and adaptation are performed backward, based on the previously quantized input signal frame. This enables us to obtain high quality output signal, without increasing the bit rate. This research puts emphasis on the quantizer design, with the optimal support limit determination, and theoretical performance evaluation. Objective quality of the output signal is evaluated through signal to quantization noise ratio (SQNR). We perform theoretical and experimental analysis of the algorithm performance and provide comparative results of implementing speech signal coding techniques with similar complexity. Experimental results show that our simple differential speech coding algorithm satisfies the G.712 Recommendation for high-quality speech coding at the bit rate of 6 bits per sample. This indicates that the algorithm can be successfully implemented in high quality speech signal coding.
