- Sound Processor constantly monitors the listening environment and is able to determine when speech is present. The charts on the Time in Speech screen track the time spent in a speaking environment. If you use a streaming accessory (e.g. a compatible iPhone), that time is also calculated and added to the total Time in Speech.
The time spent in a listening environment correlates to progress in your hearing journey. The Time in Speech goal is different for everybody and depends on age, family and work situations and where you are in your journey. A good way to get started is to track your Time in Speech for a week or so, then set your goal a little higher and see if you can improve.
Tips within the Nucleus Smart App can help you to increase your Time in Speech.
