The periodic sampling method of time compression is characterized by periodic removal of segments of speech according to predetermined compression rate (CR) and discard interval length (DIL). Fifteen middle-aged (42-54 years old) and 15 older (60-69 years old) adults participated in the study that assessed the combined effects of CR and DIL on the comprehension of time-compressed speech by aging adults. Three CRs (30, 45, and 60%), seven DILs (35 through 155 msec), and two types of speech… CONTINUE READING
