CAVE: an on-line procedure for creating and running auditory-visual speech perception experiments-hardware, software, and advantages

Denis Burnham, John Fowler, Michelle Nicol

The McGurk effect or fusion illusion, in which mismatched auditory and visual speech sound components are perceived as an emergent phone, is extensively used in auditory-visual speech perception research. The usual method of running experiments involves time-consuming preparation of dubbed videotapes. This paper describes an alternative, the Computerised Auditory-Visual Experiment (CAVE), in which audio dubbing occurs on-line. Its advantages include reduced preparation time, greater flexibility, and on-line collection of response type and latency data.
