Hearing for All: Overcoming Borders in Acoustic Communication (European NetIAS Lecture Series)

Thursday, December 10, 2020, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Hearing impairment is the most frequent chronic neurosensory disease (progressively affecting 17% of our population); it often leads to social isolation. Improving hearing aids, auditory implants and other treatments is the goal of our Cluster of Excellence Hearing4all (Oldenburg/ Hannover). An overview will be given with a focus on recognizing speech in noise – the classical “Cocktail Party Problem”. Listen yourself to experience the communication borders if hearing fails and to learn about new ways to overcome them!
