If you are suffering from hearing loss then you must know that Speech Audiometry is now a fundamental tool in hearing-loss assessment. Along with pure-tone audiometry, this can aid in determining the degree and type of hearing loss. This is a hearing test that also gives essential information in regard to your discomfort or tolerance levels to speech stimuli. It provides information on your word recognition abilities. In addition, information gained from this hearing test could help to assess proper gain and maximum levels of output of hearing aids and other amplifying devices in case of patients who have significant hearing losses. It can also help to assess how well they hear in noise. Speech audiometry also facilitates audiological rehabilitation management.
