Abstract

This report provides a description of the hardware and software tools that have recently been developed and implemented in the speech processor laboratory to facilitate a time-efficient and flexible evaluation of novel and more complex speech processing schemes. With these new system tools (referred to as "streaming mode" in this report), pre-processed pulsatile stimulation sequences are downloaded and delivered to the subject's implant(s). These stimulation sequences are generated off-line, according to a given processing strategy implemented in the MATLAB programming environment, by processing sentence or consonant tokens in digital audio file format and converting them into a stimulation pulse sequence.
