Communicating through COVID-19 and beyond: a multi-language study of speech perception in adverse listening conditions

The aim of this project is to conduct a first-of-its-kind multi-language study of speech perception in adverse listening conditions in order to chart the effects of communicating in this unique COVID-19 environment.The objective is to measure adaptation performance to degraded speech for COVID-specific and generic sentence materials in various languages with native speakers of these languages, and with non-native speakers of English (from the same first-language groups). The range of languages provide not only areal coverage to reveal the international nature of interruptions made to face-to-face speech communication due to the pandemic, but it also reflects a broad typology of languages with different acoustic cues which are theoretically more or less susceptible to signal degradation of various forms.
