This work deals with the instrumental measurement methods for the perceived quality of transmitted speech. These measures simulate the speech perception process employed by human subjects during auditory experiments. The measure standardized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), called a€œWideband-Perceptual Speech Quality Evaluation (WB-PESQ)a€, is not able to quantify all these perceived characteristics on a unidimensional quality scale, the Mean Opinion Score (MOS) scale. Recent experimental studies showed that subjects make use of several perceptual dimensions to judge about the quality of speech signals. In order to represent the signal at a higher stage of perception, a new model, called a€œDiagnostic Instrumental Assessment of Listening quality (DIAL)a€, has been developed. It includes a perceptual and a cognitive model which simulate the whole quality judgment process. Except for strong discontinuities, DIAL predicts very well speech quality of different speech processing and transmission systems, and it outperforms the WB-PESQ.It includes (i) the a€œtestinga€ databases which are described in more detail in App. B , (ii) the statistical measures, and (iii) the reference measures ... Section 5.2 presents the experimental results for the NB mode and for the S-WB mode. ... 2.3. 2.5. The results from these two measures are compared to the scores provided by the DIAL dimension estimators. ... 187 N.
