(FR) DISPOSITIF ET SYSTÈME DE TEST DE DISCRIMINATION VOCALE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a test to measure the ability of a subject to discriminate between speech sounds. The speech sounds may be selected from the world's most widely spoken languages to enable the test to be carried out irrespective of the language spoken by the subject. Speech sounds may be presented in sequences, such as triplets. The subject would then be required to detect which speech sound in each sequence is different from the others. The test may be provided on a computer or similar device, in an embodiment a tablet computer, enabling the subject to conduct a self-assessment. The test may be performed on hearing aid users to determine the likelihood of a hearing aid user obtaining better test results after receiving one or two cochlear implants.

L'invention concerne un test pour mesurer la capacité d'un sujet à discriminer les sons vocaux. Les sons vocaux peuvent être sélectionnés parmi les langues les plus parlées dans le monde pour permettre l'exécution du test indépendamment de la langue parlée par le sujet. Des sons vocaux peuvent être présentés en séquences, telles que des triplets. On demande ensuite au sujet de détecter le son vocal de chaque séquence qui est différent des autres. Le test peut être fourni sur un ordinateur ou un dispositif similaire, une tablette électronique dans un mode de réalisation, permettant au sujet de réaliser une auto-évaluation. Le test peut être réalisé sur des utilisateurs d'aide auditive pour déterminer la probabilité qu'un utilisateur de l'aide auditive obtienne de meilleurs résultats de test après qu'il ait reçu un ou deux implants cochléaires.
