Hearing the shape of a room

M. D. Plumbley
2013 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
Using a combination of stereo vision and parallax as we move around the room, we can resolve the position and angle of walls to determine the size and shape of the room we are in.  ...  Seeing the shape of a room is not difficult for most people.  ...  As a final note, the authors of (Dokmanic et al, 2013 ) have released the code and data to reproduce the results of the paper in their Reproducible Research Repository (  ...

Speech Correction Rooms in the Public Schools

Harold L. Luper, Stanley Ainsworth
1955 Exceptional children  
Since even the person hired as a speech correctionist often needs to work with hard of hearing children, the suggested rooms are designed and equipped for use with both speech and hearing problems.  ...  However, when this is not feasible, one room (Figure 2) can provide adequate arrange- ments. This room should be at least the size of the office-therapy room in Figure 1, and preferably larger.  ...
