It is easy to ascribe the control of several aspects of speech to the monitoring function of the ear. Among these aspects are control of the rate, the sound pressure level, and the intelligibility of speech. The level of amplified sidetone has been shown to affect the intelligibility of speech under certain conditions. Delayed sidetone has been shown to affect the production of speech in several aspects. Most studies of delayed sidetone measure speech in terms of rate and sound pressure. The effects of delayed sidetone on correctness of reading a passage has been studied, as well as the effect of delayed sidetone on intelligibility. This study presents the results of testing the intelligibility of talkers as the level of the sidetone of the talker is changed and the amount of delay of the sidetone is also changed.
