Lombard Speech Examples

In automotive and medical speech processing the so-called Lombard effect (change of the speech production due to background noise) is of special importance. Below you can find a few examples. The speech files were generated by subject wearing headphones playing back the same signal as if the subjects would be in a car at different speeds.

Our SONAR Simulator Supports Underwater Speech Communication Now

Due to the work of Owe Wisch and Alexej Namenas (and of the rest of the SONAR team, of course) our SONAR simulator supports now a real-time mode for testing underwater speech communication. A multitude of "subscribers" can connect to our virtual ocean and send and receive signals. The simulator consists of large (time-variant) convolution engine as well as a realistic noise simulation that ...
