Cafeteria Noise©

This is a noise recording. It is often used with speech discrimination (word recognition) test. Cafeteria Noise© was made in an employee cafeteria of a large hospital. The noise was over-dubbed three times at different time offsets in an attempt to maintain a more constant level over time. The recording has some intelligible speech and many transients. The Cafeteria Noise© recording is looped for 65 minutes. (This recording may be shorter if combined with other recordings.)
