The purpose of the study was to analyse human identifica- tion of Polish vowels from static and dynamic durationally slowed visual cues. A total of 152 participants identified 6 Polish vowels produced by 4 speakers from static (still images) and dynamic (videos)cues. The results show that 59% of static vowels and 63% of dynamic vowels were successfully identified. There was a strong confusion between vowels within front, central, and back classes. Finally, correct identification strongly depended on speakers, showing that speakers differ significantly in how "clearly" they produce vowel configurations.
