Games to train hearing impaired individuals

Project title: Games to train hearing impaired individuals

 

Description: Cochlear implants (CI) have been remarkably successful in restoring the ability to understand speech-inquiet in profoundly deaf patients. However, due to a number of device limitations music perception with CIs remains generally poor. There is emerging evidence that auditory training may improve music perception skills and enjoyment. Often the training activities can be rather tedious or boring and many CI users fail to complete them. Gamification is a promising concept that can transform music training to entertaining and enjoyable experiences.

The goal of this project is to develop a prototype of an innovative music training application that allows

its users to train on different musical aspects (e.g., pitch, timbre, harmonicity etc.). The application will

consist of several games that can be played by all ages and are easy to use. The main challenge of this

project is to make training fun and engaging. The games will be built in a 2D or 3D (VR) environment. We

expect to develop the game and conduct a UX study to evaluate the prototype.
