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.

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.
Dynamics of Self-monitoring and Error Detection in Speech Production: Evidence from Mental Imagery and MEG
It is argued that, based on the observed nonmonotonic function, a frequency window (addressing spectral difference) and a time window (constraining temporal difference) jointly regulate the comparison between prediction and feedback in speech.
Acoustically controlled auditory training in children with speech disfluency: a case report
ABSTRACT The purpose of this study was to verify the effect of the acoustically controlled auditory training on the speech fluency of children diagnosed with developmental stuttering. Two patients


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.

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.
Altered auditory feedback and the treatment of stuttering: a review.
Effect of frequency-altered feedback on stuttering frequency at normal and fast speech rates.
The effect of the magnitude and direction of the frequency shift of frequency-altered auditory feedback on stuttering frequency at both normal and fast speech rates was determined and the relationship between frequency shifts of less than one-half octave and stuttering amelioration was examined.
Effects of monitoring condition and frequency-altered feedback on stuttering frequency.
The findings are consistent with the notion that during NAF stuttering frequency varies as a function of hierarchical socio-environmental conditions in which inanimate monitoring conditions constitute one entity and that such a relationship does not exist during FAF.
