It is a take-home training software
for adults aiming to increase attention to and identification of targeted sounds
in quiet and in noise.
Training includes directed listening of voiceless consonant
sounds and all vowels. The training is not targeted at specific auditory skills such as auditory closure, but hopefully heightens attention, discrimination and memory skills. The training program has an option to perform training in variable noise backgrounds. The program is appropriate for adults with a hearing loss, but especially ideal for those with a sloping high frequency loss. NOTE: Not meant to replace commercial materials. NOT VALIDATED.
