Robert, If you do a Google Search for "hearing loss simulation" you will find several hits. The only one that really looks promising to me has a demo that doesn't seem to like Windows XP. My problem with the ones that I have heard is that for sensorineural hearing loss, they typically only filter frequency bands to mimic the pure tone audiogram, and don't do a good job presenting a concept of loudness recruitment or phonemic regression. These are, in my experience, more handicapping than the loss of sensitivity. There may be some out there, but I haven't run into them yet. As for CI simulations, how on earth could anyone with normal hearing know that a CI will ultimately be perceived like to a patient? ____________________________________________ Best Regards, Brad Ingrao, M.S.Ed.
