Abstract

Given the increasing use of sound output technologies in cluttered acoustic environments such as transport interchanges, it is of interest to discover ways to modify generated speech which maximise the likelihood of correct message reception, without resorting to excessive sound output level or repetitive announcements. Additionally, speech modifications deployed in public spaces should ideally be beneficial to all listeners, regardless of their first language.
