Many variables can affect speech perception; among that, background noise is one of the important factors where maximum interference for the speech perception happens. Perception of speech varies also with types of noise the individual is encountering. Aim: The present study was concentrated on effect of multitalker babble over speech noise in perceiving speech signal. Method: Twenty-four normal-hearing individuals participated in the present study were tested in two different conditions in different signal-to-noise ratio ratios. Result and Conclusion: Results revealed multitalker babble is more effective than speech noise thus can be used more relevantly in clinical practice.
