Diagnostic evaluation of speech intelligibility. E. ) Speech Intelligibility and Speaker Recognition, pp. 374–387. Dowden, Hutchinson & Ross, Stroudsburg (1977) 22. : Evaluating processed speech using the diagnostic rhyme test. Speech Technol. 1 Rhyme Tests Many of the English intelligibility tests use rhyming words as its speech under test. The Fairbanks test allowed the users to fill in any valid initial consonant in its test [3]. House et al. further constrained the material to six monosyllabic rhyming words [5, 6].

The walls were lined with sound-insulating sheets and padded with glass-wool panels. The floor was lined with sound-absorption rugs. The doors and windows were covered with sound-insulating curtains. The background noise in this room was approximately 40 dBA during the daytime. We tested intelligibility in real space with five listeners, all in their early twenties, with normal hearing. Unfortunately, some but not all these listeners the same as the listeners in the tests described in the previous section.
