Abstract

Speech in noise tests are an important clinical and research toolfor understanding speech perception in realistic, adverse listen-ing conditions. Though relatively simple to implement, theirdevelopment is time and resource intensive. As a result, manytests still in use (and their corresponding recordings) are out-dated and no longer fit for purpose. This work takes the popu-lar Revised Speech Perception In Noise (RSPIN) Test and up-dates it with improved recordings and the addition of a femalespeaker. It outlines and evaluates a methodology which otherscan apply to legacy recordings of speech in noise tests to updatethem and ensure their ongoing usability. This paper describesthe original test along with its use over the last four decades andthe rationale for re-recording. The new speakers, new accent(Received Pronunciation) and recording methodology are thenoutlined. Subjective and objective analysis of the new record-ings for normal hearing listeners are then given. The paper concludes with recommendations for using the R2SPIN.
