Title: OPTIMIZATION TOOL FOR AUDITORY DEVICES
Abstract:
A system for controlling parameter settings of an auditory device includes: an auditory device processor; an auditory device output mechanism including modifiable parameter settings; an auditory input sensor that detects an environmental sound; a database in communication with the auditory device processor, the database pairing each of a plurality of sets of parameter settings with a corresponding sound profile; a memory in communication with the processor and including instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to: receive the environmental sound detected by the auditory input sensor; analyze a frequency content of the environmental sound; compare the frequency content of the environmental sound with the sound profiles stored in the database and, in response to the comparison, select one of the sound profiles; and automatically adjust the parameter settings of the auditory device output mechanism to match the set of parameter settings associated with the selected sound profile.
