Data Bases

SPID Corpus

The "SPID" (SPontaneous In-car Dialogues) corpus allows investigating - for the first time ever - the communication between speakers inside a driving car and the Lombard effect that emerges at different driving speeds. Currently, speech recordings are made in order to analyze the effects of an in-car-communication (ICC) system on speech production at different driving noise levels. Details ...

 

SUMS Corpus

The "SUMS" (Speech Under Multiple Stressors) corpus allows investigating the effects of multiple stressors to speech. This corpus addresses the questions on which basis and in which way all the different stress types shine through and combine in the acoustic speech signal. We used several stressors that form a taxonomy of stress factors. Pink noise served as an external stressor. A further stress factor, cognitive load, was created by asking quiz questions. ...

Audiometer

Last Wednesday (17.10.2018) we obtained our first audiometer. With this audiometer we are able to conduct both pure-tone audiometry up to 12.5 kHz and basic speech intelligibility tests. The tests may be perfomed for either air/bone conduction or in the free field. Now we can analyze the hearing capabilities of our test subjects, which will help us when performing subjective tests. Special ...
