Perception audio-visuelle de séquences VCV produites par des personnes porteuses de Trisomie 21 : une étude préliminaire

Abstract : The speech of people with Down Syndrome (DS) is systematically altered resulting in an intelligibility loss. This was quantified only auditorily. The visual modality could actually improve intelligibility, as is the case for " ordinary " people. The present study compares the way 24 ordinary participants perceive VCV sequences (vowel-consonant-vowel) produced by four adults (2 with DS and 2 ordinary) and presented in noise in three modalities: auditory, auditory-visual and visual. The results confirm an intelligibility loss in the auditory modality for speakers with DS. However, for the two speakers involved in this study, visual intelligibility is equivalent to that of the ordinary speakers and compensates for the auditory intelligibility loss. These results put forward the importance of integrating multimodality to improve the intelligibility of people with DS.
