re: “A lot of people also include their SRT (speech reception threshold) and WRS (word recognition score) numbers. Now you need to go into your settings, and make this your signature.”
Thanks - I appreciate your help on this. I have an additional question regarding the interpretation of my chart, before I set up my signature.
I can pick off my speech reception threshold easily from the chart, but I don’t know what to make of the word recognition score. There is a WRS1 number in DB and percentage (55 and 72 in the case of my right ear) and a WRS2 number (right is 70 and 64). What’s the difference between the two and which should I use in my tagline? And, more importantly, what do the numbers mean? Can I assume that the first number was the sound setting the tester used in the speech recognition test, and the second number was the percentage of words that I responded to correctly?
I do like your suggestion of spending some time exploring the wealth of information that must be available on the internet to learn more about audiograms. I plan on doing that - good resolution for the first week of the new year.
Finally, I’m using Resound Futures. I acquired them from COSTCO in January 2012. They have worked pretty well for me - seem to help in most sound environments and have been very reliable so far. But now that they are 4 years old I’m thinking it would be a good idea to explore options for my next pair of aids. I saw some discussion of the Trax42s that caught my eye. Can you offer any thoughts about going in this direction? Any advice would be welcomed.
Thanks again and HAPPY NEW YEAR.
