The Synthetic Sentence Identification© (SSI) can be used to: a) test speech intelligibility, b) test central auditory function, and c) evaluate hearing aid performance. It is considered appropriate for ages 11 and up. The primary signal consists of ten synthetic sentences. The competition is a male talker reading a passage about Davy Crockett. This contralateral competition version has sentences on the left track (channel) and competition on the right. It is a dichotic test using binaural integration sensitive to cortical vs. brain stem lesions.
The Synthetic Sentence Identification© includes: a) audio test recording, b) instructions and score forms as printable pdf files. Normative data is included for hearing aid evaluation only. No normative data is included for the central auditory function; however, the audiologist can uncover useful insight by comparing the patient’s performance on the contralateral and ipsilateral presentations.
