Abstract

We propose a new audiometric test to assess French speakers' speech discrimination in noise. This soundfield test uses a standard cocktail-party background noise superimposed on Fournier's disyllabic word lists. The background noise is CD-recorded at constant 55dB SPL. The discrimination score is measured at a signal-to-noise ratio of -5dB, 0, and +5dB. In comparison with other audiometric tests in noise, our test requires only 5 minutes and is simple for both patient and audiologist. All patients are tested using the same standard condition, one that approaches daily life and uses a noise of moderate intensity. The result is reproducible and easy to calculate and graph. We propose this test for diagnosing innoise speech intelligibility disorders and for assisting the process of conventional or implantable hearing-aid fitting.
