The Benefits of Using Voice Recordings for Dementia Assessments
For those afflicted with dementia, early detection and diagnosis are the first steps in helping to preserve their quality of life for as long as possible. General practitioners routinely conduct in-office evaluations for older patients who report atypical memory loss, and while these tests are helpful, results can be negatively skewed due to performance anxiety. Some patients are more comfortable taking these tests without an authority figure being present. Written evaluations are one alternative, but these too have their drawbacks. That’s because the level of a person’s education can play a role in their score. Those who cannot read or write well may have a low score that has nothing to do with dementia. Conversely, someone with a higher level of education may get a better score and still have a cognitive impairment.
Auditory tests, in which a participant listens to a prerecorded series of questions in a non-threatening environment, help minimize unintentional testing biases. At Worldly Voices, we provide professionally produced voice recordings for dementia assessments that can be incorporated into screening tests administered via a computer, tablet, or smartphone. We’ve worked with universities, assessment facilities, and other healthcare professionals to provide audio files for a wide range of cognitive assessments, and we can do the same for you.
