Speech Audiometry Using Magnetic Tape on Cards: I. Present Modes of Presentation

Speech Audiometry Using Magnetic Tape on Cards: I. Present Modes of Presentation Abstract A controversy among audiologists has existed for some time as to which of the methods of presenting speech materials for various purposes is most desirable. In performing audiometric tests with speech, there are three methods of presentation which may be used. One is "live-voice testing," in which the tester's speech is monitored with a standard sound-level meter. A second, and more frequently used method, is "monitored microphone voice" testing (often misnamed "live-voice testing") in which the examiner reads a list of words through a microphone into a calibrated amplifying system, monitoring each word or a carrier phrase with a VU meter. In the third and most frequently employed mode of presentation, recorded material, either on discs or tape is utilized. Revised lists of spondaic and phonetically balanced words based on material developed at the Harvard Psychoacoustic Laboratory have been prepared by the Central Institute for the Deaf.

Abstract

Abstract A controversy among audiologists has existed for some time as to which of the methods of presenting speech materials for various purposes is most desirable. In performing audiometric tests with speech, there are three methods of presentation which may be used. One is "live-voice testing," in which the tester's speech is monitored with a standard sound-level meter. A second, and more frequently used method, is "monitored microphone voice" testing (often misnamed "live-voice testing") in which the examiner reads a list of words through a microphone into a calibrated amplifying system, monitoring each word or a carrier phrase with a VU meter. In the third and most frequently employed mode of presentation, recorded material, either on discs or tape is utilized. Revised lists of spondaic and phonetically balanced words based on material developed at the Harvard Psychoacoustic Laboratory have been prepared by the Central Institute for the Deaf. These tests, numbered References 1. Hirsh, I. J., and others: Development of Materials for Speech Audiometry , J. Speech & Hearing Disorders 17:321-337, 1952. 2. Bordley, J.
