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 obtain the British version from one of the UK hearing centres listed here.
Has anyone tried LACE? I’d be interested to hear your feedback.
