AbstractA meeting room is said to be completely speech secure when persons outside the room are not able to understand conversations from within the room, or in more extreme cases are not able to detect any speech sounds from the room. This report describes measurements of sound transmission from meeting rooms to adjacent spaces to evaluate procedures for assessing the speech security of the meeting rooms.
