Wearing a face mask affects the speech production. On top of that, the frequency response and radiation characteristics of the face mask depending on the material and shape of the mask adds to the complexity of analyzing speech under face mask. Our target is to separate the effect of muscle constriction and increased vocal effort in speech produced under face mask from sound transmission and radiation properties of face mask. In this paper, we measure up the far-field effects of wearing four… CONTINUE READING
