CI Simulation (Vocoder, Williges & Jürgens, 2019): The vocoder can simulate the information transmission of CIs to normal hearing people. It takes into account different coding strategies, different electrode-configurations and different spatial spreads. Everyone can thus get an insight into the way which parts of an acoustic signal are transmitted by a cochlear implant. Please note, that an actual CI (after aural rehabilitation) usually sounds better than these acoustic simulations.
