Abstract

This paper describes the development of a new speech intelligibility test designed for use with young school children. There are very few tests of speech intelligibility for young children to use under realistic classroom conditions. Those that exist are generally flawed by their choice of inappropriate word tests, presentation techniques, and lack of variety in the acoustic conditions. This new test has been trialled across a variety of classrooms in schools in and around London covering a range of acoustic conditions found generally in UK schools today. It is hoped that this test will eventually become a valuable tool in the validation of the acoustic performance criteria being used in school design.
