The role of transient speech components on speech intelligibility was investigated. Speech was decomposed into two components--quasi-steady-state (QSS) and transient--using a set of time-varying filters whose center frequencies and bandwidths were controlled to identify the strongest formant components in speech. The relative energy and intelligibility of the QSS and transient components were compared to original speech. Most of the speech energy was in the QSS component, but this component had… CONTINUE READING
