Why audio and speech intelligibility is CRITICAL
A classroom system that improves audio and voice intelligibility is the most important technology for K – 5 and ELL. According to the landmark MARRS study (1978 – 1994) on the effects of speech intelligibility on classroom performance:
"Education benefits of improved classroom listening via amplification of the teacher’s voice have been repeatedly illustrated for thousands of students with normal hearing as well as those students with hearing loss."
"..statistically significant gains in reading and language achievement test scores for K-12 students included in classrooms using amplification (students with and without hearing loss)."
"Teachers using amplification report improved student attention, fewer distractions, and less need to repeat instructions. Classroom management is enhanced and discipline problems are diminished."
Other studies have shown that speech intelligibility technology can lead to 33% fewer referrals to special education and also reduce teacher sick days by up to 20%. Kids and teachers alike do better in classroom equipped with speech intelligibility systems.
