Re: Young female speaker?

That talented husky young female has a great Music Hall future before her.

I'm not sure where the 100 Hz comes from -- emulation of a young

Subject: noise-masking experiments and labiovelars

Hi listers, I have two related questions for you.

I'm interested in the effects of following vowels on the perception
of labiovelars. I was wondering if 1) anybody had done the
experiment I'm proposing and 2) whether anybody had tried using
stimuli generated in a manner I'm proposing.


The procedure is as follows. I calculate the RMS amplitude of the
original signal by convolving the squared signal with a Kaiser
window with beta =3D 20, # of points given by 3.2 x the number of
frames for a single period of the lowest pitch, which I set at 100
Hz (young female speaker), then taking the square root of the result.
