Abstract The basic research and audiological findings on the effects of the normal aging process on speech perception and word recognition abilities are reviewed. The impact of these results on the interpretation of audiolmetric test results and the anticipated impact of auditory aging on the rehabilitative needs of older listeners is discussed.

On examine les résultats de la recherche et les principales conclusions audiologiques sur les effets du processus normal de viellissement sur la perception de la parole et de la reconnaissance des mots. On étudie l'incidence de ces résultats sur l'interprétation des résultats audiométriques ainsi que l'incidence prévue du vieillissement auditif sur les besoins des auditeurs âgés en matière de réadaptation.
