This experiment used a two-by-two factorial design to investigate the effects of two levels of oral practice and two types of auditory feedback upon reading times and number of speech disfluencies for 60 normally fluent speakers. During tests under delayed auditory feedback, subjects who had experienced six previous oral reading trials on a standard passage under normal auditory feedback made significantly fewer articulation errors and had significantly shorter reading times than subjects without prior reading practice. Tests of practiced subjects vs nonpracticed subjects under normal auditory feedback showed no significant differences in articulation errors or reading times. It was suggested that functional properties of auditory feedback cues were temporarily changed by oral reading practice.
