How to find us

Alexa, test my hearing

This page provides information about our Alexa skill that can be used to perform a listening test at home. The skill is currently available in German. A description on how to use it can be found on this page (in German). 

The skill automatically conducts the Oldenburg Sentence Test, which is usually performed by an ENT physician to test how well you can recognize speech in noise. Our test is not as accurate as its clinical counterpart, but the deviations of the measurements are in the range of 1 dB and therefore rather accurate for a screening that can be performed in each living room with a smart speaker.
