Self-voice recognition in 4 to 5-year-old children
2009 (English)In: INTERSPEECH 2009: 10TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL SPEECH COMMUNICATION ASSOCIATION 2009, BAIXAS: ISCA-INST SPEECH COMMUNICATION ASSOC , 2009, 820-823 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Children's ability to recognize their own recorded voice as their own was explored in a group of 4 to 5-year-old children. The task for the children was to identify which one of four voice samples represented their own voice. The results reveal that children perform well above chance level, and that a time span of 1-2 weeks between the recording and the identification does not affect the children's performance. F0 similarity between the participant's recordings and the reference recordings correlated with a higher error-rate. Implications for the use of recordings in speech and language therapy are discussed.
