Development of self-voice recognition in children
2009 (English)In: Proceedings from Fonetik 2009, 2009, 136-139 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
The ability to recognize the recorded voice as one’s own was explored in two groups of children, one aged 4-5 and the other aged 7-8. The task for the children was to identify which one of four voice samples represented their own voice. The results indicate that 4 to 5 year-old children perform as well as 7 to 8 year-old children when identifying their own recorded voice. Moreover, a time span of 1-2 weeks between recording and identification does not affect the younger children’s performance, while the older children perform significantly worse after this time span. Implications for the use of recordings in speech and language therapy are discussed.
