Building Skills with Intelligible Speech makes so much sense! I think this is a . Hearing impaired speakers tend to have a higher fundamental frequency and vary pitch less, producing problems in speech intelligibility. The results of this study suggest that specific vocal training and singing songs in appropriately lower keys may help modify the fundamental frequency and frequency range of hearing impaired client’s speech.
Purpose: This study investigated long-term speech intelligibility outcomes in 63 prelingually deaf children, adolescents, and young adults who received cochlear implants (CIs) before age 7 . This study investigated associations between a core component of spoken-language ability—speech intelligibility—and the psychosocial development of prelingually deaf CI users.
Adult speech difficulties are common and come in many forms including stuttering, dysarthria, voice problems, and articulation difficulties. Often with speech therapy and some strategies many adults can improve their speech and communication skills. There are a number of reasons speech difficulties occur in Adulthood: Accident and injury. Intelligibility of spoken languages is a widely discussed construct; however, intelligibility, as it pertains to signed languages, has rarely been considered. This study provides an initial investigation of the construct of intelligibility in American Sign Language (ASL) and evaluates potential meas .

Hudgins, C.V. (Clarence Virginius), Investigation of the intelligibility of the speech of the deaf. The relationship between pitch deviancy and other aspects of speech production that affect intelligibility of deaf speech was investigated. The speech skills assessed included the following: ratings of pitch deviancy, ratings of overall intelligibility, production of the prosodic features—stress, intonation, and pause, and production of by: Speech intelligibility is a frequent topic in deaf-related journals.
Inthe Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education published a report by an Israeli author who compared deaf Israeli children in special classes (group inclusion) in regular schools to deaf children who were mainstreamed (individual inclusion) into regular classes. This investigation sought to determine whether scores from a commonly used word-based articulation test are closely associated with speech intelligibility in children with hearing loss.
If the scores are closely related, articulation testing results might be used to estimate by: Since the days of early research characterizing the effects of deafness on speech (e.g. Hudgins and Numbers, ), technological advances such as cochlear implants have led to significant improvements in the intelligibility and language of deaf speakers (Marschark and Spencer, ).For example, Blamey et al.

Speech Therapy is a process that is used for the person who has the problem of improving the speech difficulties such as pronouncing the word, language development, communication, pragmatic language skill. Let us discuss how it is used for deaf.
Overall speech intelligibility, and supra-segmental errors of the deaf were discussed in a recent article by Gold (). Nickerson () cautioned that no two individuals whether they have hearing or not, produce speech that is exactly the same.
This investigation assessed how the vowel and diphthong production of young users of cochlear implants varied over time and how performance on the Phonetic Level Evaluation (PLE, Ling, ) corresponded with vowel and diphthong production during spontaneous speech.
Speech intelligibility is “that aspect of speech-language output that allows a listener to understand what a speaker is saying” (Nicolosi, Harryman, & Kresheck, ). Highly intelligible speech allows “naïve listeners to understand most of the child’s speech at first introduction” (Monsen, ; p.
– ). The voice varies according to the context of speech and to the physical and psychological conditions of the human being, and there is always a normal standard for the vocal output.
Hearing loss can impair voce production, causing social, educational, and speech limitations, with specific deviation of the communication related to speech and voice. Usually. Abstract An acoustic and electromyographic investigation of the speech of normal‐hearing and deaf speakers attempted to answer questions concerning formant transitions, coarticulation, and neutralization of vowels in the speech of deaf adults.
An important speech-language outcome for deaf people with cochlear implants is speech intelligibility—how well their speech is understood by others, which also affects social functioning. Beyond simply uttering recognizable words, other speech-language skills may affect communicative competence, including rate-matching or converging toward.

Comm., 5 (), pp. Google Scholar. The investigators concluded that judgment of speech intelligibility could be done reliably by untrained listeners, that quantity of speech production had little connection with speech comprehension within each grade, that results were similar for both understood vocabulary and speech comprehensibility, and that the magnitude of residual hearing is a poor predictor of both vocabulary and speech comprehension.
This study was designed to investigate the relationship between pitch deviancy and intelligibility of deaf children's speech. Ratings of pitch and overall intelligibility of the children's spontaneous speech were obtained from three listeners familiar with the speech of the deaf.
The rating scales used were from the Communication Profile developed at the National. This improvement continued, and at the 5-year interval, the median speech intelligibility was category 4 (intelligible speech to a listener with a little experience of deaf speech) and the mode.
Adult speech and hearing difficulties affect many people. Difficulties with communication can make life difficult and affect confidence, social interaction, and personal well-being. However, there are many things that can be done to improve communication and facilitate hearing and speech difficulties.
Sign languages within the Deaf community are not typically accompanied by speech (for the simultaneous use of speech and sign see, for example, Bishop, ), and the hand movements of sign have the structure, sequential organization, and semiotic conventions that identify them as a language (although see Goldin-Meadow & Brentari, for a review of the co-occurrence.
The results of this investigation indicate that comprehensibility can be evaluated reliably and that comprehensibility is associated with both speech intelligibility and language proficiency. The implications of these findings for the clinical assessment of speech.

Audio recordings were made of each child imitating 36 sentences (3, 5, or 7 syllables long). 19 Each sentence contained a key word that was either predicted by context (Read the book) or not (Get the cake).
Normal hearing adults with no previous experience listening to the speech of individuals who are deaf were.The speech intelligibility of subjects with late onset of deafness showed marked deterioration after the onset of deafness with relatively large improvements by most subjects after they received a single- or multichannel implant.
The one subject with late onset of deafness who used a tactile aid showed no improvement in speech intelligibility.
