Can you predict a face from a voice?
UZH researchers are about to find it out
Would you like to be involved?
Goals: The Phonetics and Speech Science Group of the University of Zurich is currently investigating the role of expressive audio-visual information on speaker and speech recognition, with the goal of obtaining a better understanding of the mutual contribution of face and voice cues in speech communication.
Participants: We are looking for mothers who:
Eligible candidates will be asked to submit a voice recording for accent-screening purposes.
Recording sessions: Mothers will be video-recorded reading pre-selected stories to their child and to an adult as part of two separate blocks. During the recordings, the child is cared for by the caretaker in a room adjacent to the recording room. Mother and child will be connected via video call to allow for visual interactions between the two, as well as auditory feedback from mother to child. Audiovisual stimuli will be subsequently employed as input for online perceptual experiments.
IMPORTANT: The children will not be audio- or video-recorded.
