The study consists of four sessions (one of them in online format). Prior to the actual experiments, all participants* will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the space (Session 1) and communicate any special needs to the investigators. Following the lab tour, participants will undergo several background tests (sessions 1 and 2, 1-3 days apart) for subject selection. All participants who meet the participation criteria (see below) will be invited to participate in a speaking experiment (session 3 after 1-4 days) and a listening experiment (session 4 after 1-7 days) on separate days.
