Abstract

The clarity of the speech of 12 speakers was assessed by intelligibility tests with hearing impaired subjects and from self-ratings about the speaker's ability to communicate with such listeners. The results of these tests correlate positively. Self-ratings account for approximately 60% of the variance. Thus self-ratings can be used as a convenient practical way of establishing an individual speaker's clarity.
