Auditdata Measure - Types of hearing tests

What is Speech Audiometry? 

Speech audiometry is performed to obtain an understanding of the client’s ability to discriminate speech sounds, detect speech in background noise, understand the signals being presented, and recall the information presented.

Why use speech audiometry?

Speech Stimuli

Performing Speech Audiometry assessments allows the clinician to examine the ability of the client to understand speech stimuli.

Full Auditory Pathway

It assesses the client’s full auditory pathway by demonstrating their processing capability. This is particularly relevant as most clients attend Audiological services as they are beginning to notice issues with their understanding of Speech and Speech In Noise (SIN).

How to perform speech audiometry?

Speech Audiometry can be performed using Speech Recognition (Reception) Threshold (SRT) or Speech Detection (awareness) Thresholds (SDTs). Advanced Speech Audiometry is undertaken using more complex test procedures including Speech In Noise tests. To help you perform Speech Audiometry, check out our online course that demonstrates the aspects of Speech Audiometry which Primus allows to be undertaken. Covered within the course is Speech Recognition Audiometry, Speech Detection Audiometry, Word Recognition Score, Quick SIN and how to perform these tests within Primus.
