Abstract:

This report describes the results obtained from an experimental study of a form of dichotic listening applied to speech with the objective of avoiding the phenomenon known as upward spread of masking. The study goes further to explore the effects of adjusting the relative time of arrival of the speech formant components at the two ears and the consequences of dichotic listening on the perception of speech in noise.
