Speech interference assessment: a condensed view of important considerations and a global model of acceptability

Speech interference assessment: a condensed view of important considerations and a global model of acceptability

Journal of Auditory Research 17(2): 117-138

A broad approach is taken to the assessment of speech interference. Not only intelligibility (information transfer) but annoyance, acceptability and other subjective factors in the communication network are to be considered. Nine specific factors are listed, encompassing perceptions, reactions and inter-reactions of both speaker and listener, and a model developed which depicts this interactive situation. Speech interference in the model involves a whole block of contributing factors reflecting not only reduction in information but the total dynamics of human behavior in a speech communication situation. The model is prefaced by tutorial material on the acoustics of speech, masking theory, speech perception and traditional methods of assessing speech interference, primarily the Articulation Index and the Speech Interference Level.
