The Telecoil Evaluation Procedure (TEP) was developed to provide a definitive, valid and reliable method for determining client performance with hearing aid telecoils when coupled to a standard telephone. With this recording, one may make comparative judgments relative to telecoil sensitivity (power) and fidelity.
TEP employs a hierarchical set of stimuli beginning with numbers, progressing through letters and names, and ending with connected discourse. There are five male and five female talker sets. In addition, telephone signals (busy, dial tone, and ringing) are also included in the recording.
