Acoustics of Speech and Hearing: Course Description

The 'Acoustics of Speech and Hearing' OpenCourseWare shows students the various speech and hearing processes that are involved in the physical development of human speech. Students will learn about sound propagation, sound measurement, psychoacoustics, speech sound production, speech perception and cochlear mechanics through lecture sessions and laboratory exercises. Graduate students will also examine the creation of the various sounds people can make on their own and the sounds that people can sense by listening to others. Students will also learn how to determine sound sources for auditory processes and explore the use of mechanical objects for hearing. 'Acoustics of Speech and Hearing' OpenCourseWare is geared towards first-year graduate students interested in Speech and Hearing Sciences. The lecture class is taught by MIT professors Louis Braida, John Rosowski, Christopher Shera and Kenneth Stevens.

This OpenCourseWare includes lecture notes, assignments, quizzes and lab exercises. For more information about this free online course, visit the speech communications and acoustics course page.
