Action on Hearing Loss

Jfarinas/ janvier 8, 2017/ Previous

Using automatic speech recognition to predict speech-in-noise perception for simulated age-related hearing loss Background The most common treatment for hearing loss is the fitting of hearing aids (HAs), based on the patient’s audiometric pure-tone thresholds, to restore the audibility of those sounds the patient is no longer able to hear. However, patient satisfaction and compliance with HA prescription heavily depend
