Recent improvements in speech recognition for profoundly deaf, cochlear implant patients have suggested that some people with a severe hearing impairment would be more successful with a cochlear implant than a hearing aid. Unfortunately, no studies have investigated the speech perception of the severely hearing impaired in order compare their speech perception abilities with those of cochlear implant users. To investigate this area further, a detailed investigation of the hearing aid performance of people with a severe hearing loss is being conducted in the Department of Otolaryngology at The University of Melbourne. The range of hearing losses for this study was defined as a pure tone average of greater than 6OdBHL, but no worse than 100dBSPL in the better ear. At present thirty-five (n=35) participants have been involved in this study. Each participant took part in a series of speech perception tests which included 24 consonant recognition, 11 vowel recognition, CNC words, CUNY sentences, and the connected speech test.
