Speech-Recognition Difficulties of the Hearing-Impaired Elderly

Larry E. Humes, Lisa Roberts
1990 Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research  
The role that sensorineural hearing loss plays in the speech-recognition difficulties of the hearing-impaired elderly is examined.  ...  The conclusion was that the primary determiner of speech-recognition performance in the elderly hearing-impaired subjects was their threshold elevation.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the National Institutes of Health, the technical support provided by Dave Montgomery and the cheerful participation of the subjects  ...

Factors underlying the speech-recognition performance of elderly hearing-aid wearers

Larry E. Humes
2002 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
This paper reports the aided and unaided speech-recognition scores from a group of 171 elderly hearing-aid wearers.  ...  The latter approach proved to be the most successful, accounting for about two-thirds of the variance in speech-recognition performance, with the primary predictive factors being measures of hearing loss  ...  The author also thanks Christine Mullen and David Reetz for their help with the WAIS-R testing. This research was supported, in part, by Research Grant No.  ...
