Speaking clearly for the hard of hearing. II: Acoustic characteristics of clear and conversational speech.
The first paper of this series (Picheny, Durlach, & Braida, 1985) presented evidence that there are substantial intelligibility differences for hearing-impaired listeners between nonsense sentencesExpand

Speaking clearly for the hard of hearing I: Intelligibility differences between clear and conversational speech.
This paper is concerned with variations in the intelligibility of speech produced for hearing-impaired listeners under two conditions. Estimates were made of the magnitude of the intelligibilityExpand

Acoustic properties of naturally produced clear speech at normal speaking rates.
Sentences spoken "clearly" are significantly more intelligible than those spoken "conversationally" for hearing-impaired listeners in a variety of backgrounds [Picheny et al., J. Speech Hear. Res.Expand

Although speechreading can be facilitated by auditory or tactile supplements, the process that integrates cues across modalities is not well understood. This paper describes two “optimal processing”Expand

Investigating alternative forms of clear speech: the effects of speaking rate and speaking mode on intelligibility.
Sentences spoken "clearly" (and slowly) are significantly more intelligible than those spoken "conversationally" for hearing-impaired listeners in a variety of backgrounds [Picheny, Durlach, andExpand

Speaking clearly for the hard of hearing IV: Further studies of the role of speaking rate.
The contribution of reduced speaking rate to the intelligibility of "clear" speech (Picheny, Durlach, & Braida, 1985) was evaluated by adjusting the durations of speech segments (a) via nonuniformExpand

An attempt is made to develop a quantitative theory of intensity resolution that is applicable to a wide variety of experiments on discrimination, identification, and scaling. The theory is composedExpand

Intensity Perception. II. Resolution in One‐Interval Paradigms
This paper reports the results of a series of experiments on tone pulses designed to test certain predictions of the preliminary theory of intensity resolution (Durlach and Braida, 1969) relevant toExpand

Intelligibility of conversational and clear speech in noise and reverberation for listeners with normal and impaired hearing.
The effect of articulating clearly on speech intelligibility is analyzed for ten normal-hearing and two hearing-impaired listeners in noisy, reverberant, and combined environments. Clear speech isExpand

Intensity perception. XIII. Perceptual anchor model of context-coding.
In our preliminary theory of intensity resolution [e.g., see N. I. Durlach and L. D. Braida, J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 46, 372-383 (1969)], two modes of memory operation are postulated: the trace mode andExpand
