In the present study, speech-recognition performance was measured in four hearing-impaired subjects and twelve normal hearers. The normal hearers were divided into four groups of three subjects each. Speech-recognition testing for the normal hearers was accomplished in a background of spectrally shaped noise in which the noise was shaped to produce masked thresholds identical to the quiet thresholds of one of the hearing-impaired subjects. The question addressed in this study is whether normal… CONTINUE READING
