OUTLOUD SOUNDS TEST

Come play hide-and-seek with the animals!

The Outloud hearing test is a fast, funny and motivating way for children with cochlear implants or other hearing aids to check their hearing daily. Our goal is that the children find the test to be a fun game that rewards them after hearing and reacting. The Outloud hearing test benefits the therapists and parents by offering an easy way to monitor child's hearing also for longer periods of time.

The tests play the so called Ling sounds ("mm," "oo," "ah," "ee," "sh," and "s") that cover the frequencies of speech. The application follows the hierarchical development of hearing by including the perception, segregation and recognition phases. At the perception phase the child reacts to the sound, taps the screen and gets a reward. At the segregation phase the child needs to choose a correct animal after hearing a sound. The recognition is confirmed when the child is asked to repeat the sound.

The test tries to ensure in many ways that the child doesn't cheat but really hears the sounds. There are two versions of both tests; one, where the sounds are played always in the same order, and one, where the sounds are played in random order. In addition, you can define a pause (from 1 to 5 seconds) before each sound is played. The application also contains a built-in silent test.

NOTE! The test DOES NOT REPLACE the hearing tests performed by health care professionals. It provides, however, an efficient way to monitor the development and changes in child's hearing and the proper function of the hearing aids.
