AbstractThis paper describes the process and problems of developing a new measure of architectural speech security. Such a measure is required to more accurately rate the probability of a listener outside a room being able to overhear conversations from within the room. Previous work has considered various levels of speech privacy, where some speech is intelligible [1]. However, speech security usually implies that none of the overheard speech is intelligible, or in some cases it is not even audible.
