Abstract

Human speech perception is not only based on acoustic speech signals but also on visual cues like lip or jaw movements. Based on this assumption we used a betweensubject design to test listeners’ speaker identification ability in a voice line-up after they were familiarized with a speaker under either of the following condition: (a) visual and degraded acoustic information, (b) degraded acoustic information only, and (c) visual information only. The results from this experiment indicate that listeners are able to perform the identification task to a considerable degree under all three experimental conditions. We conclude that listeners’ identification ability of speakers based on degraded acoustic material is about as good as their identification ability based on visual speech cues. The combination of acoustic and visual cues does not enhance listeners’ performance.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
