The aim of this research was to investigate the influence of speech rate to news comprehension, based on two experiments. After TV news presenters were chosen, their news were transcribed. News were then rhetorically edited, so presenters had to read both edited and unedited news in neutral and fast speech tempo. For each news we measured speaking and articulation rate. The participants in two experiments were students of Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, who had to firstly, answer listening comprehension test, and then subjectively evaluate understanding and speech tempo. The results have shown better comprehension of news with speaking rate lower than 6.33 syllables per second, and news with articulation rate lower than 6.75 syllables per second. Rhetorically edited news were significantly more understandable to participants (p<0.05).
