This article provided affiliates with novel information relevant to speech science, specifically room acoustics. In both practicing audiology and speech language pathology, as well as in speech and hearing science research, the space where the work is done is an integral part of the function. Hence, for all of these endeavors it can be important to measure the acoustics of a room. This article provided a tutorial regarding the measurement of room reverberation and background noise, both of which are important when evaluating a space’s strengths and limitations for speech communication. As the privacy of patients and research participants is a primary concern, the tutorial also describes a method for measuring the amount of acoustical insulation provided by a room’s barriers (walls, windows, and doors). Several room measurement data sets—all obtained from the assessment of clinical and research spaces within the authors’ department—are presented as examples in the article.
