New online LACE makes understanding speech even easier


Neurotone have just released a web-based version of their LACE training software, which is excellent news for anyone who wants to better understand speech in noise.

LACE (Listening And Communication Enhancement) is essentially a training program for listening, it teaches you to listen better. I did an interview with Dr Daniel Taft from Blamey Saunders Hearing about how they use LACE a while back. I think the release of the web-based version will make it easier for people to try LACE and get the benefit from it – it’s compatible with iPad and other mobile devices so you can train wherever you are. And being a bit of a nerd myself, it’s good to see them using HTML5 rather than Flash.

I’ve got a sign-up code for the online version and will be trying it out ASAP. I’ll let you know how the new version works on PC, iPod and iPad – and how much my listening ability improves.

Check it out for yourself on the Neurotone site.
