The Intelligibility of Time Compressed Words as a Function of Age and Hearing Loss Speech intelligibility scores for time compressed PB words were determined for 28 young and old subjects having either normal or sensorineural hearing losses. The discrimination of time compressed words was, not affected differentially by the nature of the subject’s hearing ability. However, time compression attenuated the performance of the aged ...

Speech intelligibility scores for time compressed PB words were determined for 28 young and old subjects having either normal or sensorineural hearing losses. The discrimination of time compressed words was, not affected differentially by the nature of the subject’s hearing ability. However, time compression attenuated the performance of the aged more than the young, and this difference increased as the amount of compression was increased.
