Speech audiometry is the measurement of how well a person detects, hears, and recognizes speech such as words and sentences. Speech audiometry is important because most patients with hearing loss have difficulty understanding what others are saying. You’ll learn in this course about common speech audiometry tests and how they are administered. You also begin to appreciate why it’s better to present speech materials like words to a patient via a recording on a CD or some other device rather than speaking into a microphone.
