Recognition memory in noise for speech of varying intelligibility

Congratulations, Rachael! “Recognition memory in noise for speech of varying intelligibility” appeared in the January issue of the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America!  The paper  provides new evidence that the listener- and environment-oriented speaking style changes (clear speech and noise-adapted/Lombard speech) improve sentence recognition memory compared to conversational speech and speech produced in quiet. More intelligible speech—even when presented in challenging listening situations, i.e., in noise—allowed for better speech recognition memory. Effortful speech processing in challenging listening environments can be improved by speaking style adaptations on the part of the talker.
