Abstract:

A new test of speech intelligibility called the Consonant Recognition Test was developed and evaluated. Designed to use human subjects in conjunction with a digital computer as a precision laboratory tool for diagnostic analysis of speech communication systems, this test appears to combine the attributes of simplicity, efficiency of testing, sensitivity and diagnostic ability to an extent not previously attained by intelligibility tests. To minimize the effects of speaker differences and conveniently permit the use of a large number of speakers, nine speakers were rotated or multiplexed in the recorded version of the test lists, so that each list contained a sample of the nine voices. The report describes the test, the source tape, the test analysis computer program, experiments relating this test to others in wide usage and a detailed example of the proper application of the test.
