Introducing the answer to noise...

Hearing aid users have one common complaint: difficulty understanding speech in noisy environments. Too often, people with hearing loss cut themselves off from family and friends when it seems like their hearing aid just can’t do the job.

Now, the scientists at Sense Synergy proudly offer help.

The science behind hearing

Understanding speech requires not just hearing, but seeing. When you learn to combine both these senses, we call that visual-auditory speech comprehension. Think about it: when your dining companion says the words “fair” and “there,” it’s very hard to hear the difference with your ears. But it’s easy to see the difference: her mouth makes very different shapes for “f” and “th.” Likewise, it’s impossible to tell the difference between “pall,” “ball,” and “mall” with only your eyes. But the difference is quite recognizable to the ear. Speech comprehension uses all these clues to create meaning. It’s a skill that even people with perfect hearing need in order to understand speech in a noisy place. And it’s a skill that can be developed.

ReadMyQuips is a powerful new tool to strengthen that skill. It’s just like a crossword puzzle, except instead of a letter, each box contains a word. You listen to the wise or witty saying—the “quip”—and enter what you think you heard. As your skills improve, the noise level gets louder. Soon, you’ll be amazed at how well you can understand speech, even when the speaker is almost inaudible!

Training your brain

ReadMyQuips exercises your brain holistically. You’re not just learning parts of speech out of context, but a real-life skill in a real-life set-up. No other home training program offers the combination of visual and auditory information. Plus, we offer advice along the way, developed by researchers to help you incorporate your new skills into your life.

And it works! ReadMyQuips has been clinically shown to improve speech comprehension by over 40%.
