Description: The JVLMT is a 22 min- standardized voice memory test with a learning phase, a repetition phase and a testing phase. Participants learn 8 voice identities which they later have to recognize among 2 foils (3-alternative forced-choice task). The testing phase includes 22 items with varying difficulty (Rasch-conform). All stimuli contain pseudo speech utterances with similar-to-English phonetics which enable the applicability of the test independent of participants’ native language. Results of each participant will be displayed at the end of the test as well as norms. Single-trial results are also included. The JVLMT is available as programmed in PsychoPy (cf. PDF document "JVLMT User Instructions"). Who is eligible to use the JVLMT? The JVLMT has been developed and validated for research purposes between 2018 – 2020 by researchers of the Friedrich-Schiller University Jena, Germany and the RWTH University of Aachen. The test is free to use in a non-profit manner, without the need to register. For details of the development and validation, please refer to the paper by Humble et al.
