Intelligibility assessment in children with cleft lip and palate in Italian and German

Marcello Scipioni, Matteo Gerosa, Diego Giuliani, Elmar Nöth, Andreas Maier

Current research has shown that the speech intelligibility in children with cleft lip and palate (CLP) can be estimated automatically using speech recognition methods. On German CLP data high and significant correlations between human ratings and the recognition accuracy of a speech recognition system were already reported. In this paper we investigate whether the approach is also suitable for other languages. Therefore, we compare the correlations obtained on German data with the correlations on Italian data. A high and significant correlation (r=0.76; p < 0.01) was identified on the Italian data. These results do not differ significantly from the results on German data (p > 0.05).
