UNLABELLED This study examined how the intelligibility of irrelevant speech, determined with the Speech Transmission Index (STI), affects demanding cognitive task performance. Experiment was carried out in a laboratory that resembled an open-plan office. Three speech conditions were tested corresponding to a private office (STI = 0.10), an acoustically… (More)
The aim of this study was to examine the effects of speech varying in intelligibility on cognitive performance and subjective perceptions of sound environment disturbance. 37 subjects performed a series of tasks in three conditions in which speech transmission indexes were 0.10, 0.35 and 0.65. These correspond to cellular office, well-designed open office… (More)
The aim of the study was to determine the effect of a temperature of 29°C on performance in tasks involving different cognitive demands and to assess the effect on perceived performance, subjective workload, thermal comfort, perceived working conditions, cognitive fatigue, and somatic symptoms in a laboratory with realistic office environment. A comparison… (More)
