Title (EN) HEARING AUGMENTATION SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS D'AMÉLIORATION DE LA CAPACITÉ AUDITIVE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Various systems and methods are disclosed herein to increase the quality of the sound and intelligibility of speech delivered to a user by combining electric audio signals from more than one hearing assistance device that incorporates an active signal enhancement system. The method includes receiving electric audio signals at a first hearing assistance device, and sending electric audio signals to a second hearing assistance device. The electric audio signal is encoded as a replacement for input to an microphone channel located at the second hearing assistance device. The electric audio signals from the microphone located at the first hearing assistance device and the microphone located at the second hearing assistance device are combined.
(FR)L'invention concerne divers systèmes et procédés pour augmenter la qualité du son et l'intelligibilité de la parole délivrée à un utilisateur en combinant des signaux audio électriques provenant de plus d'un dispositif d'aide auditive comportant un système d'amélioration de signal actif. Le procédé consiste à recevoir des signaux audio électriques au niveau d'un premier dispositif d'aide auditive, et à envoyer des signaux audio électriques à un second dispositif d'aide auditive. Le signal audio électrique est codé en tant que remplacement destiné à être entré dans un canal de microphone situé au niveau du second dispositif d'aide auditive. Les signaux audio électriques provenant du microphone situé au niveau du premier dispositif d'aide auditive et du microphone situé au niveau du second dispositif d'aide auditive sont combinés.
