Live Speech Mapping
Live speech mapping evaluates the accuracy of a hearing aid fitting using cutting edge technology. The protocol is quite simple. The audiologist will place a small microphone into the client’s ear canal, along with the hearing aid. She will turn on a speech passage that comes from a speaker in front of the client. The audiologist will be able to “see” what the client is hearing through the hearing aid in real time. A screen will display the results of this assessment so that the client can watch as adjustment are made to the hearing aid. Having a visual representation of live speech is extremely informative for our clients. It allows them to visualize the difference that a properly fitted hearing aid can make. We encourage family members to participate in the process so that they can understand how a persons hearing loss can affect their communication abilities.
