The purpose of this study is to compare speech perception performance in Mandarin-speaking Nucleus CI24 implantee using standard behavior MAPs and NRT-based MAPs. Eight Nucleus CI24 users (5 years and older) participated in the study. They all fulfilled the following criteria: (1) behavioral MAP and NRT thresholds can be reliably obtained; (2) had more than(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the verbal and performance intelligence of young Mandarin-speaking cochlear implant users with the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC). We also analyzed whether related factors helped develop verbal and performance IQs. We studied 60 children implanted with Nucleus 24 devices; the children represented a(More)
This paper presents a method to improve hidden Markov model (HMM) based parametric speech synthesis by integrating global variance (GV) of log power spectrum (LPS) derived from line spectral pairs (LSPs) into minimum generation error (MGE) model training. In order to alleviate the over-smoothing effect of the generated spectral structures, an LPS-GV based(More)
