The influence of the Speech Enhancer on sentence intelligibility was measured for two males with severe hypokinetic dysarthria under a variety of environmental settings. Comparisons of speech intelligibility were made between sentences read aloud with and without the Speech Enhancer. Additional measures of speech intelligibility were made for one of the subjects, including a comparison between the Speech Enhancer and another amplifier and the combined effect of treatment with the Speech Enhancer. The treatment effects on speech intelligibility were appreciable. Clinical implications are discussed.
