The debate whether natural fast speech is more intelligible than artificially time-compressed speech has not clearly been answered yet. For Dutch, for instance, it has been shown in a phoneme detection task that time-compressed speech is more intelligible than natural fast speech, while for Danish listeners, no difference between the intelligibility of natural fast speech and time-compressed speech was reported from a dictation task. This article further investigates these conflicting results by reporting on a dictation task with Dutch listeners. The results suggest that the reported differences are more likely to be language-related than task-related.
