The purpose of this study was to determine how well listeners can identify vowels based exclusively on static spectral cues. This was done by asking listeners to identify steady-state synthesized versions of 1520 vowels (76 talkers x 10 vowels x 2 repetitions) using Peterson and Barney's measured values of F0 and F1-F3 [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 24, 175-184 (1952)]. The values for all control parameters remained constant throughout the 300-ms duration of each stimulus. A second set of 1520 signals… CONTINUE READING
