Re: Articulation Index

If you want to measure speech intelligibility of coded speech
(distortion+noise) the AI can definitely not be applied. An option is to use
ITU-T recommendation P.862 that describes a method called Perceptual
Evaluation of Speech Quality

The method was developed for speech quality but in general speech quality
and intelligibilty are closely linked and the algorithm can be re-optimized
for intelligibility. A paper describing the method will be published
(probably this year) in the J. Audio Eng. Soc.

If the coder is only introducing stationary additive noise to the speech,
then you can do this. If the perceptual coder is affecting the speech in a
way different from this (which I suspect it is), then you cannot apply the
AI (to my understanding of the Speech Intelligibility Index ANSI standard).
