We incorporated a simulated military radio into a spoken language interface to a distributed simulation environment for military commander training. The resulting architecture bypassed the inherent problem of acoustic mismatch that arises in integrating radio output with a speech recognition front end, while at the same time preserving the realism of speech synthesis output through a military radio. We assessed the utility of formal evaluation methods to benchmark the impact of the radio model on a commercial speech synthesizer.
