Abstract [en]

A synthesis experiment was conducted based ondata from ratings of speaker skill and acousticmeasurements in samples of political speech.Features assumed to be important for “being agood speaker” were manipulated in the sampleof the lowest rated speaker. Increased F0 dynamicsgave the greatest positive effects, butelimination of disfluencies and hesitation pauses,and increased speech rate also played arole for the impression of improved speakerskill.
