A trivia game was developed to improve listening in background noise in a variety of impaired populations. Preliminary data were collected in 10 healthy asymptomatic volunteers (n = 7 treatment and n = 3 control) using Quick Speech in Noise Test (QSIN) (Etymotic Research, Elk Grove Village, IL) to assess each participant’s ability to process speech with varying levels of background noise. Playing trivia game led to improved listening in noise in the treatment group, when compared to the controls. Additional data were collected from one patient with aphasia as a result of left hemisphere stroke. This participant’s performance improved in QSIN and these improvements were retained after six months.
