IEEE Standard Method for Measuring Transmission Performance of Speakerphones

This standard provides techniques for objective measurement of electroacoustic and voice-switching characteristics of speakerphones that connect directly or indirectly to an analog or digital telephone network. Due to the various characteristics of speakerphones and the environments in which they operate, not all of the test procedures in this standard are applicable to all speakerphones. Application of the test procedures to atypical speakerphones should be determined on an individual basis.

Standard for Evaluating Electroacoustic Performance of Communication Devices

This standard provides methods for evaluation of electroacoustic devices that enable speech communication. These devices include handsets, headsets, and speakerphones, or incorporate microphones and speakers to provide a speech communication function. The standard is applicable to speech communication terminals that connect to any network, as well as to electroacoustic subsystems that connect to a terminal by any means. Due to the various characteristics of terminals and subsystems and the environments in which they operate, not all of the test procedures in this standard are applicable to all types of devices. Guidance for the applicability of specific tests is given within this standard. This standard does not apply to voice recognition systems such as speech-to-text, text-to-speech, or speech-to-command functions.

IEEE Trial-Use Standard Method for Measuring the Magnetic Field Intensity Around a Telephone Receiver

A practical method for determining the magnetic-field characteristics of a telephone receiver by means of objective measurements in a test connection is described. The method was developed in response to a need to specify the magnetic field at selected locations around a telephone receiver, required for satisfactory coupling of hearing aids. However, the method is sufficiently general to allow complete mapping of the magnetic field. It is also useful for other applications where knowledge of the magnetic field intensity is required.

IEEE Standard Method for Measuring Transmission Performance of Telephone Sets

The methods that are used to measure telephone-set transmission performance may be divided into two classes: objective methods and subjective methods. The objective methods, which are those discussed in this standard, utilize a sound source resembling the human mouth to drive the transmitter, and an acoustic coupler resembling the human ear as a termination for the receiver. The sound source comprises a source of electrical energy and a moving-coil loudspeaker unit having supplementary electrical and acoustical components which produce a sound field simulating that of a typical human voice. This special loudspeaker is referred to as an artificial mouth. The acoustic coupler comprises a microphone and a terminating air volume having supplementary acoustic components which produce a load on the receiver simulating that of a typical human ear. This coupler is referred to as an artificial ear. The artificial mouth and ear are useful in comparing the performance of telephone sets at frequencies in the significant portion of the speech range.

IEEE Standard Methods for Measuring Transmission Performance of Analog and Digital Telephone Sets

Superseded by IEEE Std 269-2002. Practical methods for measuring the transmission characteristics of both digital and conventional to wire analog telephone sets by means of objective measurements on a test connection are described. The test results thus obtained may be used as a means of evaluating or specifying the transmission performance of a telephone set on a standardized basis. The measurements are applicable to telephone sets incorporating carbon or linear transmitters. Measurements are over the frequency range most useful for speech: 100-5000 Hz. The test methods are not intended to be applicable to special devices, such as noise-exclusion transmitters, distant-talking transmitters, insert-type receivers, or noise-exclusion receivers equipped with large ear pads.
