Many factors affect the intelligibility of synthetic\ud speech. One aspect that has been severely neglected\ud in past work is hearing loss. In this study, we investigate\ud whether pure-tone audiometry thresholds\ud across a wide range of frequencies (0.25–20kHz)\ud are correlated with participants’ performance on a\ud simple task that involves accurately recalling and\ud processing reminders. Participants’ scores correlate\ud not only with thresholds in the frequency ranges\ud commonly associated with speech, but also with extended\ud high-frequency thresholds
