Cross-sectional evaluation of an internet-based hearing screening test in an occupational setting

This cross-sectional study evaluates an online-based speech-in-noise test specifically designed for the detection of noise-induced hearing loss, in a representative population of noise-exposed employees. The test appears to be suitable for the screening of high-frequency losses, with sensitivity and specificity values of >80%. This study describes translational research for the application of this test in an occupational setting.
