When designing an open plan office, which design consideration will have a better impact on speech privacy: HIGH CEILING HEIGHT or CEILING ABSORPTION?

A, If you are trying to stop sound ( voice) from leaving one room and going into another, you need barrier technology which is based upon the frequency and amplitude of the noise in the room. If you are treating the room for speech intelligibility to make voices easily heard, you will need sound absorption technology on the 4 walls.
