Dr.-Ing. Jan-Niklas Voigt-Antons


Jan-Niklas Voigt-Antons joined the Telekom Innovation Laboratories as a research scientist in January 2009 and is working there since 2014 as a senior research scientist. He received his diploma in psychology in 2008 from the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany, a Doctor-of-Engineering degree in 2014 from the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany and has been doing research at the Quality and Usability Lab at the Technische Universität (TU) Berlin, since. His research interests are in Quality-of-Experience evaluation and its physiological correlates with an emphasis on media transmissions and human-machine-interaction, including neural processing of multimodal interaction. During summer 2012 he was visiting researcher at MuSAE Lab (INRS-EMT), Canada where he examined neural correlates of quality perception for complex speech signals. In spring 2014 he was visiting researcher at the department of psychology of NTNU, Norway where he examined neural correlates of audiovisual asynchrony.

Zusammenfassung Auditory-based brain-computer interfaces (BCI) have been gaining significant grounds recently, particularly for visually impaired users. The majority of existing auditory BCIs are based on P300 auditory event related potentials. Previous studies have shown, however, that P300s may be affected by the quality of the presented speech stimuli. Since visually impaired users commonly rely on text-to-speech (TTS) readers to e.g., navigate websites and read documents, this study investigated if the quality of the TTS system had an effect on observed P300 amplitudes. An experiment with 14 healthy subjects showed that indeed TTS synthesizer quality plays a significant effect on P300 amplitude. Hence, it is recommended that auditory BCI developers pay careful attention to the quality of the TTS system commonly utilized by the user, as low-quality systems may negatively affect BCI performance.
