CI in UHL low-frequency pitch perception (Dillon et al., 2019)

Margaret T. Dillon, Emily Buss, Meredith A. Rooth, English R. King, Harold C. Pillsbury & Kevin D. Brown
Purpose: Three experiments were carried out to evaluate the low-frequency pitch perception of adults with unilateral hearing loss who received a cochlear implant (CI).Method: Participants were recruited from a cohort of CI users with unilateral hearing loss and normal hearing in the contralateral ear. First, low-frequency pitch perception was assessed for the 5 most apical electrodes at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after CI activation using an adaptive pitch-matching task. Participants listened with a...

Speech fluency in apraxia of speech (Harmon et al., 2019)

Tyson G. Harmon, Adam Jacks & Katarina L. Haley
Purpose: Slowed speech and interruptions to the flow of connected speech are common in aphasia. These features are also observed during dual-task performance for neurotypical adults. The purposes of this study were to determine (a) whether indices of fluency related to cognitive–linguistic versus motor processing would differ between speakers with aphasia plus apraxia of speech (AOS) and speakers with aphasia only and (b) whether cognitive load reduces fluency in speakers with aphasia with and without...

Fundamental frequency and rate on synthetic speech (Vojtech et al., 2019)

Jennifer M. Vojtech, Jacob P. Noordzij, Gabriel J. Cler & Cara E. Stepp
Purpose: This study investigated how modulating fundamental frequency (f0) and speech rate differentially impact the naturalness, intelligibility, and communication efficiency of synthetic speech.Method: Sixteen sentences of varying prosodic content were developed via a speech synthesizer. The f0 contour and speech rate of these sentences were altered to produce 4 stimulus sets: (a) normal rate with a fixed f0 level, (b) slow rate with a fixed f0 level, (c) normal rate with prosodically natural f0 variation,...

Susan B. Ingram, Vicki A. Reed & Thomas W. Powell
Purpose: The ability of 5- and 6-year-old male children (23 participants) between the chronological ages of 5;0 and 6;11(years;months) with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS; n = 9) and with typical development (TD; n = 14) to detect differences in vowel duration of syllable pairs is explored. We asked whether the children with CAS show different patterns of performance on the vowel duration difference experimental task than those of their similarly aged peers with TD.Method:...

ASR for treating apraxia of speech (Ballard et al., 2019)

Kirrie J. Ballard, Nicole M. Etter, Songjia Shen, Penelope Monroe & Chek Tien Tan
Purpose: Individuals with neurogenic speech disorders require ongoing therapeutic support to achieve functional communication goals. Alternative methods for service delivery, such as tablet-based speech therapy applications, may help bridge the gap and bring therapeutic interventions to the patient in an engaging way. The purpose of this study was to evaluate an iPad-based speech therapy app that uses automatic speech recognition (ASR) software to provide feedback on speech accuracy to determine the ASR’s accuracy against human...

Optimized and predictive phonemic interfaces (Cler et al., 2019)

Gabriel J. Cler, Katharine R. Kolin, Jacob P. Noordzij, Jennifer M. Vojtech, Susan K. Fager & Cara E. Stepp
Purpose: We empirically assessed the results of computational optimization and prediction in communication interfaces that were designed to allow individuals with severe motor speech disorders to select phonemes and generate speech output.Method: Interface layouts were either random or optimized, in which phoneme targets that were likely to be selected together were located in proximity. Target sizes were either static or predictive, such that likely targets were dynamically enlarged following each selection. Communication interfaces were evaluated...

Dual-task performance in Parkinson disease (Whitfield et al., 2019)

Jason A. Whitfield, Zoe Kriegel, Adam M. Fullenkamp & Daryush D. Mehta
Purpose: Prior investigations suggest that simultaneous performance of more than 1 motor-oriented task may exacerbate speech motor deficits in individuals with Parkinson disease (PD). The purpose of the current investigation was to examine the extent to which performing a low-demand manual task affected the connected speech in individuals with and without PD.Method: Individuals with PD and neurologically healthy controls performed speech tasks (reading and extemporaneous speech tasks) and an oscillatory manual task (a counterclockwise circle-drawing...

STMs for speech in impaired listeners (Venezia et al., 2019)

Jonathan H. Venezia, Allison-Graham Martin, Gregory Hickok & Virginia M. Richards
Purpose: Age-related sensorineural hearing loss can dramatically affect speech recognition performance due to reduced audibility and suprathreshold distortion of spectrotemporal information. Normal aging produces changes within the central auditory system that impose further distortions. The goal of this study was to characterize the effects of aging and hearing loss on perceptual representations of speech.Method: We asked whether speech intelligibility is supported by different patterns of spectrotemporal modulations (STMs) in older listeners compared to young normal-hearing...

TBI-QOL Communication short form with children (Cohen et al., 2019)

Matthew L. Cohen, David S. Tulsky, Aaron J. Boulton, Pamela A. Kisala, Hilary Bertisch, Keith Owen Yeates, Mark R. Zonfrillo, Dennis R. Durbin, Kenneth M. Jaffe, Nancy Temkin, Jin Wang & Frederick P. Rivara
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the internal consistency and construct validity of the Traumatic Brain Injury Quality of Life Communication Item Bank (TBI-QOL COM) short form as a parent-proxy report measure. The TBI-QOL COM is a patient-reported outcome measure of functional communication originally developed as a self-report measure for adults with traumatic brain injury (TBI), but it may also be valid as a parent-proxy report measure for children who have sustained...
