Generic data compression algorithms is an area of digital processing that is focusing on reducing bit rate of the speech signal for transmission or storage without significant loss of quality. The focus of this paper is to compress the digital speech using wavelet transform. The main idea behind the generic data compression algorithms is to represent uncompressed speech with minimum number of bits and optimum speech quality. Wavelet transform has been recently proposed for signal analysis. The wavelet transform is useful to remove redundancies and irrelevancies present in the speech signal for the compact representation.
