The role of fundamental-frequency dynamic-range contrast in competing-talker scenarios

Paolo A. Mesiano1, Johannes Zaar1,2, Lars Bramsløw2, Helia Relaño-Iborra1,3, Torsten Dau11Hearing Systems Section, Department of Health Technology, Technical University of Denmark, Kongens Lyngby, Denmark2Eriksholm Research Centre, Snekkersten, Denmark3Cognitive Systems Section, Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, Technical University of Denmark, Kongens Lyngby, Denmark The effects of fundamental-frequency (F0) cues on speech intelligibility in competing-talker …

Masking release with non-stationary speech-like stimuli

Hyojin Kim1, Viktorija Ratkute1, Bastian Epp11Hearing Systems Section, Department of Health Technology, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark Comodulated masking noise and binaural cues can facilitate detecting a target sound from noise. These cues induce a decrease in detection thresholds, quantified as comodulation masking release (CMR) and binaural masking level difference (BMLD), respectively. Previous studies …

Individual differences in auditory continuity perception and its relationship with phonemic restoration of speech in normal hearing individuals

Srikar Vijayasarathy1, Animesh Barman21Department of Audiology, JSS Institute of Speech and Hearing, Mysuru, India2Department of Audiology, All India Institute of Speech and Hearing, Mysuru, India The study investigated illusory auditory continuity percept of the vowel /a/, and its relationship with the phonemic restoration of speech in noise in 25 individuals with normal hearing. The perception …

Rollover effects at higher-than-normal levels in speech materials with low but not high context
