"mahmood soleimani": Comparison of speech distractors

Dear List -

I was sent the enclosed inquiry by a student who is investigating the
effectiveness of different kinds of maskers on speech.  Does anyone
know of relevant work?  It seems like an interesting experiment.

Subject: Inquiry


I'm an MA student from Iran working on my dissertation, which aims to
compare the effects on listening comprehension of different auditory
backgrounds. Specifically, my subjects will listen to some Voice
of America English news reports, each being marred with either radio
static (as background noise), background speech in Farsi (as the
participants' mother tongue), background speech in English (as the
learner language), background speech in Spanish (as a totally
unfamiliar language), or no mutilation (i. e., noise-free).

Looking forward to hearing from you soon, I thank you so much again.

Yours truly,

M. Soleimani
