Calibration of speech perception to room reverberation

  author={Kanako Ueno and Nicolien Kop and Barbara G. Shinn-Cunningham},
Past studies of sound perception often assumed that our auditory sensory processes are relatively static, rather than plastic. However, in everyday environments, we naturally and fluidly compensate for interfering effects of background noise and room reverberation. In order to investigate how listeners calibrate auditory perception to such acoustic interference, a listening experiment was performed to measure the effect of sudden changes of reverberation on the identification of consonants… CONTINUE READING
