Abstract: Simulations of the human hearing system can help in a number of research fields; including work with the speech and hearing impaired as well as improving the accuracy of speech recognition systems and the naturalness of speech synthesis technology. The results from psychoacoustic experiments carried out over the last few decades have enabled models of the human peripheral hearing system to be developed. Conventionally, analyses such as the Fast Fourier Transform are used to analyze speech and other sounds to e…
