Re: Directional characteristics of the human voice

Hi Angelique,

Prof. Angelo Farina and his team are doing research on that area. They
recently published at the 118 AES Convention in Barcelona, a paper about
directional characteristics of the voice inside cars, presenting several
manequins with loudspeakers attached.

The paper is:

"Balloons of Directivity of Real and Artificial Mouth Used in Determining
Speech Transmission Index", preprint 6492

He use to publish his paper on his website:


However, that paper is not there yet, but I'm sure you can find
other interesting material about the topic there, or ask him for a copy.
