Examines how speaking mode and presentation mode influence auditory-visual perception of words within nonsense sentences. Benefit of clear speech for words occurring in the middle of sentences compared with words at either the beginning or end of sentences for both; Suggestion that speaking clearly and providing visual speech information provide complimentary information.

    Speech reception thresholds (SRTs) were measured at a central focus of attention and at 20�, 40�, and 60� locations distant in azimuth. Measurements were taken with one target collocated with two maskers, or with maskers flanking the target by �20�. For 80% of trials,...

    Detection and tracking of the lip contour is an important issue in speechreading. While there are solutions for lip tracking once a good contour initialization in the first frame is available, the problem of finding such a good initialization is not yet solved automatically, but done manually....

    The authors examined spatial frequency (SF) tuning of upright and inverted face identification using an SF variant of the Bubbles technique (F. Gosselin & P. G. Schyns, 2001). In Experiment 1, they validated the SF Bubbles technique in a plaid detection task. In Experiments 2a-c, the SFs used...
