Using a Dereverberation Program to Improve Speech Intelligibility and Reduce Perceived Listening Effort in Reverberation
In this article, the authors investigated the effect of a hearing aid feature, “Reverberant Room”, on listening effort. Their study measured both speech recognition and perceived listening effort for adult listeners with hearing loss.
The tele-test handset provides an excellent means to measure the frequency response, gain and advanced features of hearing aid telecoil-based phone programs. This tool, paired with monitoring and follow-up, can help with troubleshooting and may contribute to increased patient use and satisfaction with telecoil-based hearing aid phone programs in their own environments by preventing dispensing of inappropriate telecoil responses.
