“Hearing Study: Sensitivity to Features of Speech Sounds”
The purpose of this study is to better understand the sensitivity of listeners to the fast changes in frequency or amplitude of sounds that occur in speech. The investigators are studying ways to manipulate these aspects of sounds in an effort to make speech sounds more clear.
Signal processing to improve intelligibility
Signal processing will be used to manipulate frequency and amplitude fluctuations in complex sounds.
