Heard on the radio the other day about a free hearing test done over the phone called Telscreen. The hearing test is based on similar tests overseas but includes speech material and technology developed specifically for use in Australia. So I gave them a call and found out I’m near the edge of normal hearing, no real surprise there for me, but it could give you an indication that you need to get your hearing tested properly. Results from others in the office included normal hearing, and outside the range of normal hearing.
The phone number is 1800 826 500 and takes less than 5 minutes. Don’t forget to call it twice so you can test both ears, and you don’t have to supply any details if you don’t want to.
