Abstract [sv]

Denna artikel undersöker hur man kan skapa ökad förståelse för hörselskador i vardagliga ljudmiljöer med hjälp av en realtidssimulation. Den producerade simulationen är binaural, och innefattar olika element av hörselskador såsom hörselnedsättning och tinnitus, samt sköter uppspelning av producerade ljudmiljöer i ett 4.0-surroundformat. Artikeln tar avstamp i tidigare forskning, beskrivningar av hörselskador i vetenskaplig litteratur, samt självbedriven etnografi med hörselskadade individer. Processen för framtagningen av simulationen beskrivs, och de olika steg som tagits för att anlända vid en fullständig slutprodukt redogörs. Upplevelsen utvärderas med hjälp av kvalitativa användartester med 13 deltagande studenter, där resultatet pekar på att simulationen har bidragit till en ökad förståelse för hörselskador i vardagliga ljudmiljöer.

Abstract [en]

This article explores how a real-time simulation can contribute to better understanding regarding hearing impairments in everyday sound environments. The produced simulation is binaural, and includes different elements of hearing impairment such as hearing loss and tinnitus, and handles playback of produced sound environments in a 4.0-surround format. The article is built upon previous research, descriptions of hearing impairments in scientific literature, as well as self-executed ethnography with hearing impaired individuals. The process of designing the simulation is described, as well as the different steps taken in order to arrive at a final product. The experience is evaluated through qualitative user testing with 13 participating students, where the results indicate that the simulation has contributed to a better understanding of hearing impairments in everyday sound environments.
