Measuring liveliness in presentation speech
2005 (English)In: Proceedings of Interspeech 2005, Lisbon, 2005, 765-768 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper proposes that speech analysis be used to quantifyprosodic variables in presentation speech, and reports theresults of a perception test of speaker liveliness. The test materialwas taken from a corpus of oral presentations made by18 Swedish native students of Technical English. Livelinessratings from a panel of eight judges correlated strongly withnormalized standard deviation of F0 and, for female speakers,with mean length of runs, which is the number of syllablesbetween pauses of >250 ms. An application of these findingswould be in the development of a feedback mechanism for theprosody of public speaking.
