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.)
