[PERCEPTUAL EQUALIZERS FOR IMPROVING SPEECH SIGNALS BASED UPON AUDIOMETRY EXAMS]


This paper describes a design strategy to personalized binaural equalizers with the aim of improving the perception of speech signals.

This is carried out by means of standard audiometry test results. Thus, an individual with hearing losses

(who does not always need auricular devices) can use the audiometry outcome so as to configure an equalizer that compensates his own losses.

This perceptual equalizer could be connected to a loud-speaker or a communication system (ex: VoIP) for achieving comfortable hearing.
