Abstract

Abstract Thirty stutterers, aged 14 to 59, took part in an experiment in which various modes of white noise were presented through earphones to mask out self-hearing of speech during four out of five situations involving oral reading of 300-word passages. The speech and masking noise were simultaneously recorded on tape and later were analyzed. It was found that masking noise caused a reduction in stuttering, constant noise being the most effective in this regard. Randomly presented one-second bursts of noise ranked next in efficacy of reduction while identical bursts of noise, induced at the commencement of a stuttering moment, were the least effective in diminishing stuttering.
