Psychophysical Scaling of Distorted Speech Magnitude estimation and magnitude production procedures were used by ten normal-hearing subjects to scale the perceived distortion corresponding to the systematically varied physical distortion of a speech signal. The combined function based on the results of the two procedures exhibited a slope of 0.83, indicating that perceived distortion grows more ... Research Article

Magnitude estimation and magnitude production procedures were used by ten normal-hearing subjects to scale the perceived distortion corresponding to the systematically varied physical distortion of a speech signal. The combined function based on the results of the two procedures exhibited a slope of 0.83, indicating that perceived distortion grows more slowly than physical distortion.
