The effect of spectral smearing on the identification of pure F0 intonation contours in vocoder simulations of cochlear implants.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Performance of cochlear implant (CI) users on linguistic intonation recognition is poorer than that of normal-hearing listeners, due to the limited spectral detail provided by the implant. A higher spectral resolution is provided by narrow rather than by broad filter slopes. The corresponding effect of the filter slope on the identification of… (More)
