Learning to listen – the British way

21 07 2011

PC Werth have been working on a British version of LACE and it’s now available. In British accents!

This software is useful for people who want to improve their ability to listen – not to hear speech, but to listen and understand it. This can be used with hearing aids or cochlear implants, and practiced in different scenarios – against background noise, competing voices, and with fast speakers. I found the US version a real challenge.

You can try it here.

You can obtain the British version from one of the UK hearing centres listed here.

US version here.

Has anyone tried LACE? I’d be interested to hear your feedback.
