Factors Affecting Fluency in Stutterers when Speaking under Altered Auditory Feedback
If the auditory feedback of a normal speaker is altered, speech control suffers. When, for example, a delay is introduced between when a sound is spoken and when it is heard (delayed auditory feedback, DAF), speech rate decreases and all types of speech error are made. The original explanation of these effects was that speakers normally monitor their auditory feedback in order to check that the speech is being produced correctly. Thus, when auditory feedback is artificially interfered with, speech control suffers.
