- Speech Perception in a Communicative Context: An Investigation Using Question/Answer Pairs. Flynn, Mark C. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Jun1999, Vol. 42 Issue 3, p540
Presents information on a study which investigated how traditional tests of speech perception may underestimate or misrepresent the actual speech perception abilities of adults with a hearing impairment. Materials and methods; Results; Discussion.
- Influence of Hearing Loss on the Perceptual Strategies of Children and Adults. Pittman, Andrea L.; Stelmachowicz, Patricia G.; Lewis, Dawna E.; Hoover, Brenda M. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Dec2002, Vol. 45 Issue 6, p1276
Presents information on a study that aimed to determine whether the perceptual weights of children and adults with hearing loss differ from those of their normal-hearing counterparts. Research methods; Results and discussion on the study.
- Effects of Single-Channel Phonemic Compression Schemes on the Understanding of Speech by Hearing-Impaired Listeners. Goedegebure, Andre; Hulshof, Marieke; Maas, Ronald J. J.; Dreschler, Wouter A.; Verschuure, Hans // Audiology: Journal of Auditory Communication;Jan/Feb2001, Vol. 40 Issue 1, p10
The effect of digital processing on speech intelligibility was studied in hearing-impaired listeners with moderate to severe high-frequency losses. The amount of smoothed phonemic compression in a high-frequency channel was varied using wide-band control. Two alternative systems were tested to...
- Consonant Enhancement Effects on Speech Recognition of Hearing-Impaired Children. Smith, Lynn Z.; Levitt, Harry // Journal of the American Academy of Audiology;Sep1999, Vol. 10 Issue 9, p411
Differences in gain (enhancement, in dB) required to optimize the consonant/vowel intensity ratio in nonsense syllables were determined for stops and fricatives, both voiced and voice-less, in 12 children with congenital moderate to severe sensorineural hearing loss. The test stimuli were...
- Detection and Recognition of Stop Consonants by Normal-Hearing and Hearing-Impaired Listeners. Turner, Christopher W.; Fabry, David A.; Barrett, Stephanie; Horwitz, Amy R. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Aug92, Vol. 35 Issue 4, p942
Presents a study which examined the possibility that hearing-impaired listeners require a larger signal-to-noise ratio for the detection of speech sounds. Method; Results and discussion.
- Instruction for developing speech perception skills. Moog, Jean; Biedenstein, Julia // Volta Review;Nov94, Vol. 96 Issue 5, p61
Presents instructions for the development of speech perception skills in hearing impaired children in the United States. Importance of listening ability of the child; Cochlear implant instructional program; Tactile aid instructional program; Teaching activities.

Presents information of a study made on the speech production skills of children with cochlear implants, tactile aids and conventional hearing aids. Causes of poor speech intelligibility; Benefits of multichannel and single-channel cochlear implants; Importance of imitation task assessment.
- Spoken language results: Vocabulary, syntax, and communication. Geers, Ann; Moog, Jean // Volta Review;Nov94, Vol. 96 Issue 5, p131
Presents information on the vocabulary, syntax and communication ability in deaf children with cochlear implants (CI), tactile aids (TA) and conventional hearing aids (HA). Rate of language and communication skill acquisition of CI group; Average performance of tactile aid and hearing aid...
