Yunhua Zhang, Ling Shao, Cees G.M. Snoek
2021 arXiv   pre-print
For learning and evaluation, an existing dataset is repurposed and reorganized to allow for repetition counting with sight and sound.  ...  This paper strives for repetitive activity counting in videos.  ...  We repurpose and reorganize the Countix dataset for our goal of counting repetitive activities by sight and sound.  ...

1995 Neuroscience Letters  
In these subjects, the magnetic responses to counted pitch changes were located at visual and temporal eortices whereas ignored pitch changes activated the temporal cortices almost exclusively.  ...  Magnetic responses were recorded to pitch changes in a sound sequenee when the subjects were either counting these changes or ignoring the stimuli.  ...  The subjects' task was either to silently count the deviant tones occurring among the standard tones, or to ignore the sounds while reading a Braille book during the recordings.  ...

The role of vision in the development of finger–number interactions: Finger-counting and finger-montring in blind children

Virginie Crollen, Rachel Mahe, Olivier Collignon, Xavier Seron
2011 Journal of Experimental Child Psychology  
Compared with sighted controls, blind children used their fingers less spontaneously to count and in a less canonical way to count and show quantities.  ...  In the current study, 14 congenitally blind children and 14 matched sighted controls undertook three different test batteries that examined (a) general cognitive abilities, (b) the spontaneous use of finger-counting  ...  The finger-counting strategy was used by only 4 blind children (Sha, Ana, Ill, and Ant) as compared with 10 sighted children.  ...

Disfluencies in sight translation vis-à-vis dominating text function: A pilot study based on English-Polish sight translation performed by professional interpreters

Paula Gorszczyńska
2020 Beyond Philology : An International Journal of Linguistics, Literary Studies and English Language Teaching  
The aim of the paper is to provide an account of a pilot study whose primary intention was to classify and analyse disfluencies that recur in sight translations performed by professional interpreters.  ...  An attempt was also made to trace any interdependencies of disfluency occurrence and ST dominating function.  ...  Explicitations did rank next to repetitions and false words activated but came from a single translator only.  ...

Spatial Language Processing in the Blind: Evidence for a Supramodal Representation and Cortical Reorganization

Marijn E. Struiksma, Matthijs L. Noordzij, Sebastiaan F. W. Neggers, Wendy M. Bosker, Albert Postma, Thomas Wennekers
2011 PLoS ONE  
The current fMRI study focused on the nature and specificity of representing spatial language in the left SMG by combining behavioral and neuronal activation data in blind and sighted individuals.  ...  Indeed, the left SMG was activated during spatial language processing in both blind and sighted individuals implying a supramodal representation of spatial and other dimensional relations which does not  ...  Spatial language general task activation compared to rest common to blind and sighted subjects. reversals and repetitions (r(11) = 2.54, p = .03, see Figure 4D ).  ...

Memorization Without Comprehension: A Window onto the 'Extremities' of the Capability of Human Brain

Dr. Amjad Saleem
2018 الإيضاح  
It is further concluded that Quran memorization is a special case, in which a range of extra linguistic factors such as identity, motivation and intention play an important role.  ...  The purpose of this study is to investigate expert Quran memorizers on their memorization practices including what they brought to the act of memorization and what, according to them, underlay their success  ...  , link sound to the visuals and yet they memorize and recite the Quran as well as the sighted memorizers.  ...

The results indicate that the sighted tend to focus mainly on the quantitatively represented changes such as pitch and loudness of the sounds, while the blind are inclined to focus not only on the quantitative  ...  The results show no significant difference in discrimination between the two groups; the blind and the sighted.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT This work is supported by JSPS Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (S), 17100009.

2016 Marine Ecology Progress Series  
Here we explored how animal movement influences how many, and how often, animals are impacted by sound.  ...  Because most anthropogenic sound-producing activities operate continuously or intermittently, snapshot distribution estimates alone tend to underestimate the number of individuals exposed, particularly  ...  Several anthropogenic activities emit repetitive sounds separated by silent periods.  ...

Text Decodability and the First-grade Reader

Heidi Anne E. Mesmer
2005 Reading & Writing Quarterly  
Treatment participants reading highly decodable text were found to apply letter=sound knowledge to a greater extent than control participants.  ...  They also were more accurate and relied on examiners less for assistance. Treatment and control participants did not differ in self-correction rates.  ...  Insertions, omissions, substitutions, and tolds were all counted as errors. Repetitions were not counted as errors because, in many cases, readers repeated words or phrases to monitor themselves.  ...
