New paper on longitudinal computer-based naturalistic speechtraining published

Raffael Schmitt, Martin Meyer and Nathalie Giroud present: "Improvements in naturalistic speech-in-noise comprehension in middle-aged and older adults after 3 weeks of computer-based speechreading training" in NPJ Science of Learning DOI: 10.1038/s41539-023-00179-6

Problems in understanding speech in noisy environments are characteristic for age-related hearing loss. This study investigates whether a computer-based speechreading training improves audiovisual speech perception in noise in a sample of middle-aged and older adults. Using generalized linear mixed-effects models we found a significant improvement in audiovisual speech perception in noise in the speechreading training group.
