AbstractAirborne sound insulation ratings can be evaluated in terms of their correlation with various subjective ratings of sound insulation. This paper considers sound insulation ratings in terms of the intelligibility of transmitted speech because speech is a common type of disturbing sound and because speech intelligibility tests can provide accurate subjective ratings.
