First the problem I'm tyring to solve: I'd like to find a way of removing any potential noise from audio files recorded in noisy environments where we are trying to record birdsong. This is for the sake of privacy, we cannot record anything unless we're sure we aren't recording private conversations.
So, what is the potential for voice masking in this problem? I've done research but it is hard to understand the real potential without learning a lot of background science first. So I'm hoping someone in the community can help.
Basically I'd like to know if voice masking techniques are able to be used on a random sound file to mask all potential voice so it is not understandable... at the same time as ensuring that we aren't masking other sounds, especially birdsong. Is this doable?
