Robert T. Dwyer, René H. Gifford, Fred H. Bess, Michael Dorman, Anthony Spahr, Benjamin W. Y. Hornsby
2019 American Journal of Audiology  
There was a significant association between subjective ratings of listening effort and listening-related fatigue for our AHL, but not for the control group.  ...  Likewise, complaints of listening-related fatigue were more frequent and more of a problem in everyday life for AHL compared to the control group.  ...  The authors would like to thank the study participants for volunteering their time and effort to this research.  ...

Speech Likability and Personality-Based Social Relations: A Round-Robin Analysis over Communication Channels

Laura Fernández Gallardo, Benjamin Weiss
2016 Interspeech 2016  
The Social Relations Model is well-known for analyses of interpersonal attraction. As a novelty in this paper, the model is applied to assess different effects on likability ratings from speech only.  ...  Their voices were recorded and transmitted through communication channels, and ratings of speech likability and speaker personality were then collected from the same individuals following a round-robin  ...  While narrowband (NB, 300-3,400 Hz) is still predominant in most of today's communication networks, efforts have been made towards motivating the transition to an extended frequency band, namely wideband  ...

Human pause and resume behaviours for unobtrusive humanlike in-car spoken dialogue systems

Jens Edlund, Fredrik Edelstam, Joakim Gustafson
2014 Proceedings of the EACL 2014 Workshop on Dialogue in Motion  
The work presented is part of a larger effort to find unobtrusive human dialogue behaviours that can be mimicked and implemented in-car spoken dialogue systems within in the EU project Get Home Safe, a  ...  The analysis reveals several human temporal, semantic/pragmatic, and structural behaviours that are good candidates for inclusion in spoken dialogue systems.  ...  Introduction In-car spoken dialogue systems face specific challenges that are of little or no relevance for systems designed for other environments.  ...

Identifying the Quiet Areas of a Small Urban Setting: The Case of Mytilene

2017 Global NEST Journal  
A performance matrix was then created in order to compare the results, in relation to acoustical, functional and visual criteria.  ...  Based on citizen contribution, a number of "places" derived that are perceived as "quieter" than others, by the permanent residents of Mytilene.  ...  Nevertheless, "quietness", as a concept still remains vague and further research is needed in order to conclude whether it is an attribute that could be created or simply and preferably, preserved.  ...

Speech and driving – solution or problem?

M. Vollrath
2007 IET Intelligent Transport Systems  
It is crucially important that verbal interactions are designed in such a way that for the driver the task "driving" remains in the focus of attention.  ...  In order to process this information and be able to drive safely at the same time, an information management is necessary in the vehicle.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The work of this paper was conducted within the project "Strategies for driver assistance", which is funded by the Ministry of Economics, Labor and Transport of Niedersachsen.  ...

The sound quality of vehicle interior noise: a challenge for the NVH-engineers

Klaus Genuit
2004 International Journal of Vehicle Noise and Vibration  
On the one hand, no disturbing noises should be heard and on the other hand, the perceived sound quality, for example from the powertrain, should fulfill the expectations of the listener with respect to  ...  The development of a good sound quality is in conflict with other targets.  ...  This is because listeners primarily classify perceived auditory events in terms of their experience, expectations and subjective attitudes.  ...
