Influence of noise type on speech reception thresholds across four languages measured with matrix sentence tests.

OBJECTIVE To compare speech reception thresholds (SRTs) in noise using matrix sentence tests in four languages: German, Spanish, Russian, Polish. DESIGN The four tests were composed of equivalent five-word sentences and were all designed and optimized using the same principles. Six stationary speech-shaped noises and three non-stationary noises were used… CONTINUE READING
