Direct Magnitude Estimates of Speech Intelligibility in Dysarthria: Effects of a Chosen Standard.
Weismer, Gary; Laures, Jacqueline S.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v45 n3 p421-33 Jun 2002
This study applied four direct magnitude estimation (DME) standards to the evaluation of speech from four individuals with dysarthria and three neurologically normal speakers. It found a fixed set of sentence-level utterances was scaled differently depending on the specific standard used. Results are discussed in terms of possible standardization of midrange intelligibility exemplars for DME experiments. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
