A simplified version of the House Ear Institute's (HEI) hearing in noise test (HINT), a test for evaluating functional hearing ability in noisy conditions, is now accessible online. The HINT is being offered on these two Web sites as the HINT-FS (hearing in noise test — functional screener). Based on the HINT technology, the HINT-FS detects a person's difficulty understanding speech in background noise while not being subjected to the variances in computer speakers. The online test measures speech recognition within a variety of noisy situations using a fixed (or constant) signal-to-noise ratio.
