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 Subjective speech quality assessment depends on listener ``quality" opinions after hearing a particular test speech stimulus. Subjective scores are given based on a perception and quality judgment process that is unique to a particular listener. These processes are postulated to be dependent on the listener's internal reference of what good and bad quality sounds like, as well as their mental and emotional states. To overcome this variability, subjective listening tests often average scores over several listeners. In this paper, we use electroencephalography (EEG) and self-assessment tools to investigate the neural and affective correlates of speech quality perception of reverberant speech, with the goal of obtaining new insights into human speech quality perception in complex listening environments. We show that EEG event related potentials (ERP) are a useful tool to monitor the conscious stages of neural-processing during a speech quality assessment task. Significant correlations were obtained between the so-called P300 ERP component and the reverberation time of the room, as well as between the P300 peak amplitude and emotional self-assessment ratings. These insights could lead to more effective ways of characterizing room acoustics for improved speech quality and intelligibility.
