Intelligibility of Speech Mediated by Low Frame-Rate Video

We show that when speakers can see each other on a low-frame-rate video screen, they articulate more clearly than the case where they cannot see each other and are communicating only over an audio link. This contrasts with the case when speakers can see each other face to face, when their speech is less clear.
