An experimental investigation of the effect of altered auditory feedback on the conversational speech of adults who stutter.
The results suggest that studies that use standard DAF and FAF settings for all participants are likely to underestimate any AAF effect and it is not yet possible to predict who will benefit from AAF devices in everyday situations and the extent of those benefits.
Stuttering inhibition via altered auditory feedback during scripted telephone conversations.
Clinical application of these findings may be that people who stutter can use specific software or smartphone applications that produce second speech signals to inhibit stuttering frequency effectively during telephone conversations.
Effect of delayed auditory feedback on clutter ’ s speech and reading
Introduction: Auditory feedback changes, in general, provide the increase of the speech fluency of people who stutter, but few studies have investigated the effects on speech of people who clutter.

Investigating the effectiveness of the Telephone Assistive Device, designed to provide AAF on the telephone to people who stutter, on reducing stuttering severity revealed significant immediate benefits from the TAD in all call conditions.
O efeito do feedback auditivo atrasado na gagueira
There was an improvement of stuttering level with speech training in both groups, with a tendency of G1, which made use of SpeechEasy® device to present higher reduction in the disfluencies rate and bigger gain in articulatory rate and information production rate.
Impacto do uso do SpeechEasy nos parâmetros acústicos e motores da fala de indivíduos com gagueira
Purpose To investigate variations in speech motor skills in adults who stutter and those who do not, using the SpeechEasy® altered auditory feedback device. Methods 1 2 Results The spontaneous speech


Effects of Alterations in Auditory Feedback and Speech Rate on Stuttering Frequency
Results indicated that stuttering frequency was significantly decreased during conditions of delayed and frequency altered auditory feedback at both speech rates, refuting the notion that a slowed speech rate is necessary for fluency enhancement under conditions of altered auditory Feedback.

Experimental investigation of the effects of frequency-altered auditory feedback on the speech of adults who stutter.
A series of single-subject experiments evaluated the effects of frequency-altered auditory feedback (FAF) on the speech performance of four adult males who stutter, finding no consistencies across subjects in responses to FAF.

An ABA time series design was used to examine the effect of extended, continuous exposure to frequency-altered auditory feedback (FAF) during an oral reading and monologue task on stuttering
Effect of monaural and binaural altered auditory feedback on stuttering frequency.
The effect of monaural and binaural alterations in auditory feedback on stuttering frequency was investigated and reductions in stuttered frequency were found with the altered auditory feedback conditions.

Results showed that significant fluency enhancement occurred under DAF at both normal and fast speech rates at all DAF settings, corroborates the notion that a slowed rate of speech is not a necessary antecedent for fluency improvement under conditions of altered auditory feedback.
Effect of altered auditory feedback on people who stutter during scripted telephone conversations.
The proportion of stuttering events per scripted telephone conversations were significantly reduced in the AAF conditions relative to the non-altered auditory feedback condition, and stuttering frequency was reduced for the FAF and DAF.

The conclusion is drawn that the use of FAF as a prosthetic device is limited and the relationship between prolonged speech and fluency enhancing is discussed.
