Abstract

Persons with complex communication needs have difficulties in production and/or understanding of oral and/or written language. Software applications have great potential in speech rehabilitation, especially when providing visual feedback of the produced voice to users thus enabling better rehabilitation and increased user motivation. This paper presents software application for people with hearing impairment that has a form of voice controlled quiz with visual feedback of the users’ input voice frequency. The proposed application is evaluated through a case study of using it as an input for on-line application for hearing-aid evaluation.
