Minimizing information overload in a communications system utilizing temporal scaling and serialization
MetadataShow full item record
Recent Navy research has identified the monitoring of multiple communications streams as a performance bottleneck. We introduce a novel approach for improved monitoring of multichannel voice communications which makes use of timecompression of speech in order to present communications serially, and discuss some of its potential benefits and pitfalls. An experiment currently being developed and piloted is detailed as part of a larger series of studies designed to examine the plausibility of this new approach. This study will explore the effects of sped up speech on listeners' comprehension of vocal radio transmissions.
