Abstract

This study investigated the effect of five common speech coders on both the intelligibility and the voice quality of various disordered speech samples. Coded speech is less intelligible and perceived to be of lower quality than the natural speech of the same talker. Talker and coder interact to affect the intelligibility and perceived quality of speech at the output of the coder, so coder effects are much larger for some talkers than for others.
