Recording environment

The recordings will take place in an anechoic room.

The subject will not be provided with an electrical sidetone path for their own voice.

The lighting and temperature levels will be such as to cause no stress to the subject and care must be taken to ensure that there is no distracting light reflection off the prompting screen. Care must also be taken to ensure that the anechoic nature of the recording is not compromised by allowing significant acoustic reflections to be picked up on the microphone. The prompting monitor should be slightly angled and there should be no tables or other sound reflecting surfaces between the subject and the microphone (or tables to be covered with sound absorbing material).
