Abstract

This work addresses the problem of predicting the subjective intelligibility of reverberant speech. Using new subjective listening test data, we evaluate the performance of three objective intelligibility measures that can be computed from the room impulse response. The measures are found to correlate well with the word and phoneme recognition rates of reverberant speech. In particular, one of the examined measures more readily relates to spatial dimensions and hence may be more convenient for environment-tracking acoustic interface applications.
