  • Historically, radiotelephony speech intelligibility has been equated to signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Although the human being has proven to be a reasonably consistent measurement system for determining voice quality delivered by various radio systems, assembling listening panels can prove to be troublesome. Consequently, most voice intelligibility experiments are now conducted using pre-set SNRs which can be equated to a specified articulation score or level of intelligibility. A major… CONTINUE READING
