Standard
ANSI ASA  S12.65-2006 (Reaffirmed 2020)
American National Standard For Rating Noise with Respect to Speech Interference
Scope/Abstract
This standard defines a simple numerical method for rating the expected speech-interfering aspects of noise using acoustical measurements of the noise. The relevant acoustical characteristics of the noise are summarized in terms of a single-valued index known as the speech interference level. The application of the measure is intended for natural speech.
Extent of Recognition
