Abstract

•Time-stretching improves perception of concurrently spoken words in older and younger adults.•Divided and selective auditory attention both benefit from time-stretching of sentences.•Spatially separated sentences allow more effective resource allocation in dual attention tasks.•Elderly and young listeners perform equivalently on spatially separated listening tasks.
