Assistant Professor Keiko Ishikawa’s recent publication entitled “Predicting Intelligibility Deficit in Dysphonic Speech With Cepstral Peak Prominence” was featured on the Twitter and LinkedIn pages of the Annals of Otology, Rhinology and Laryngology. Dr. Ishikawa’s study revealed that intelligibility was significantly lower in dysphonic speech than normal speech in the presence of background noise. The correlation between CPP and intelligibility score was moderate when the intelligibility scores were averaged per speaker, leading her to conclude that cepstral peak prominence only moderately predicts intelligibility deficit in dysphonic speech. Accordingly, CPP alone is not sufficient for describing the deficit.
