Abstract
ABSTRACTThe
purpose of this study was to examine the impact of delays on the benefit of
speechreading. This was evaluated with a speech perception test, a modified
version of the Just Follow Conversation test (JFC) in this study called JFC live.
The speech material was presented live by a woman who read out loud pieces of
text. The speech material was presented in competing noise. Twenty-three test
subjects participated in the test, twelve men and eleven women. Different delays
(0-200 ms) were presented to the test subject during the test. Furthermore, one
cognitive function, working memory, was tested with the Reading Span test after
the JFC live. The result showed that hearing impaired people benefited from
visual cues. The... (More)

investigate. (Less)
