A phoneme recognizer for the hearing impaired
2002 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper describes an automatic speech recognition system designed to investigate the use of phoneme recognition as a hearing aid in telephone communication. The system was tested in two experiments. The first involved 19 normal hearing subjects with a simulated severe hearing impairment. The second involved 5 hearing impaired subjects. In both studies we used a procedure called Speech Tracking to measure the effective communication speed between two persons. A substantial improvement was found in both cases.
