ABSTRACT
Examines the effects of stimulus variability on speech perception in listeners with mild-to-moderate sensorineural hearing loss. Correlations of talker-variability and speaking rate word-recognition performance with scores on the speech perception self-assessment questionnaire; Influence of introducing stimulus variability by varying speaking rate on listeners.
