Speech intelligibility is very important in certain projects, such as evacuation systems, public address installations or Sound Masking systems. Because good speech intelligibility can even save lives in some situations, it is very important to perform an STI measurement in advance.
Good speech intelligibility is of vital importance
Sound installations for evacuation and broadcasters are used in, among other places, places of worship, hospitality, offices, greenhouses, courts, retail, stations, airports and care institutions. Wherever it is important or even critical to be able to communicate clearly with those present, for example in the case of an emergency. In connection to safety, it is of great importance in evacuation systems and public address systems that announcements are clearly audible everywhere on site. Speech intelligibility is checked by measuring the Speech Transmission Index, STI for short. Following the measurement, the correct sound level can be figured out and the perfect settings of the audio equipment determined. In addition, STI measurements are also performed for the correct adjustment of Sound Masking systems. After all, the Sound Masking must be set so it works optimally. Only that way, the privacy of your visitors can be guaranteed and the concentration of your employees can be safeguarded.
