Speech samples of 79 dysarthric patients were judged for voice quality, articulation, nasality, and prosody as well as overall intelligibility. Application of a multiple regression model found that intelligibility can be expressed as a linear combination of weighted perceptual dimensions with articulation as the strongest contributor to intelligibility.
