Abstract

The lack of valid and reliable Spanish speech audiometry materials constitutes an important clinical problem. Such tests necessitate the construction of appropriate materials. Analysis of English and Spanish literature on speech audiometry led to the identification of guidelines for new test materials in the Spanish language. Test lists were devised, recorded and used to evaluate 10 normal-hearing native Spanish-speaking subjects. The results obtained led to a final set of recorded lists. Boston College Auditory Test lists may be used successfully with Spanish-speaking patients. The current study should provide the impetus and sufficient guidelines upon which speech stimuli in other languages may be constructed.
