Blind and sighted individual´s thresholds for ordinary pitch, repetition pitch and loudness.
Blekinge Institute of Technology, School of Management.
2013 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The perceived pitch and loudness of sounds change as they fuse with reflections from nearby objects. Blind people use both sources of information, with dominance for the use of pitch. We studied if their better performance as compared to sighted can be related to the ability to discriminate tone frequency, repetition pitch and loudness. Only loudness discrimination differed between blind and sighted persons.
