THE COMPREHENSION OF RAPID SPEECH BY THE BLIND, PART II.
FOULKE, EMERSON
PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN THE COMPREHENSION OF COMPRESSED SPEECH WERE DEFINED. RECORDED AURAL SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT VARIOUS RATES BY MODIFICATION OF TAPE RECORDING AND PLAYBACK EQUIPMENT. FOUR TRAINING METHODS WERE EVALUATED USING SEVENTH-, EIGHTH-, AND NINTH-GRADE BLIND STUDENTS AS SUBJECTS. SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN TRAINING METHODS WERE NOT DEMONSTRATED. ALTERNATE METHODS OF PRODUCING RAPID SPEECH WERE ALSO EVALUATED. THE "SAMPLING METHOD" WAS COMPARED WITH THE "SPEED CHANGING METHOD" AND SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES WERE NOT FOUND. THE AUTHORS CONCLUDED THAT SUBJECTS MUST HAVE GREATER EXPERIENCE AND MOTIVATION BEFORE EITHER TRAINING METHODS OR METHODS OF RAPID SPEECH PRODUCTION CAN BE EVALUATED. (JK)
