In everyday day environments, background sound is often present. Speech intelligibility improves, especially for noisy sensory inputs, when speech is slowed down, giving the listener take more time to sample and process the acoustic stimulus. In addition, speech can be more comprehensible when the background fluctuates over time as compared to stationary background noise, an effect known as modulation masking release (MMR). Prior work shows that the MMR benefit is smaller for rapid speech than for regular speech, an effect attributed to
