Abstract

The effect of a noisy environment on speech communication was analyzed to test the hypothesis that a noisy room is a hearing-impairing room. The speech characteristics of normal-hearing people in a noisy environment were predicted to be similar to those of hearing-impaired people in non-noisy environment. The data from video, audio and dosimeters were evaluated in an examination of discourse productions and shifts of attention.
