The evaluation of processed and synthesized speech is closely related to the auditory perception of complex sounds. An understanding of the perception of complex sounds is therefore helpful to improve the quality of processed sounds. The perceptual study of speech sounds in this paper is mainly concerned with auditory masking. Unlike most such studies, the targets in our experiment are narrowband noise signals and the maskers arc wideband harmonic complex sounds. We show that the detection of… CONTINUE READING
