In this paper, automatic assessment models are developed for two perceptual variables: speech intelligibility and voice quality. The models are developed and tested on a corpus of Dutch tracheoesophageal (TE) speakers. In this corpus, each speaker read a text passage of approximately 300 syllables and two speech therapists provided consensus scores for the two perceptual variables. Model accuracy and stability are investigated as a function of the amount of speech that is made available for… CONTINUE READING
