Abstract [en]

A synthesis experiment was conducted based on data from ratings of speaker skill and acoustic measurements in samples of political speech. Features assumed to be important for “being a good speaker” were manipulated in the sample of the lowest rated speaker. Increased F0 dynamics gave the greatest positive effects, but elimination of disfluencies and hesitation pauses, and increased speech rate also played a role for the impression of improved speaker skill.
