We’ve been fielding a lot of questions regarding online data collection for speech perception experiments as many of us prepare for disruptions to in-person data collection. We’ve put together a brief tutorial to share some of our successes, challenges, and advice.
A PDF of this page can be downloaded here, but the dynamic page is likely to be more current than the static PDF.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have additional questions or if you have feedback/suggestions for making this a better resource for the community in these challenging times.
Be on the lookout for a new paper to appear in Cognitive Science titled “EARSHOT: A minimal neural network model of incremental human speech recognition.” This work was led by Drs. James Magnuson, Heejo You, and Jay Rueckl at the University of Connecticut. A preprint of an earlier version of this paper is available here.
Be on the lookout for a new paper to appear in Attention, Perception, & Psychophysics. The title is “Talker normalization is mediated by structured indexical information.” This work was conducted in collaboration with Dr. Christian Stilp at the University of Louisville. Data/script and preprint are available on the Open Science Framework, here!
The SLaP Lab was well represented at the ASA meeting in Louisville. Nick and Nikole, Ph.D. students in our lab, presented posters relaying their recent discoveries (available here), and Dr. Theodore gave a talk at a special session titled “Exploring the interface between linguistic processing and talker recognition.” A live-tweet of the session can be read here; and here is a link to Dr. Theodore’s talk with a transcript of sorts (as she was the one tweeting). Thanks, ASA community, for a week filled with lively discussion (and a few mint juleps)!
Dr. Theodore will begin a three-year term as Associate Editor for Speech Communication at Journal of the Acoustical Society of America Express Letters (JASA-EL) on July 1, 2019.
Be on the lookout for a new paper to appear in JASA Express Letters. The title is “Structured phonetic variation facilitates talker identification.” This work was conducted in collaboration with Ms. Divya Ganugapati in conjunction with her SHARE award from OUR. Reach out to email@example.com if you’d like a preprint. Congratulations, Divya!
