Dallas, Texas November 22, 2002 - The Integrity Center, inc., a high tech
risk management firm announces the online availability of a test for Speech
Perception in a Noisy Environment, ™.
Speech Perception in a Noisy Environment ™ was developed in 1994 by The Integrity

they enter the subject's responses into an online interface. Reports of the
test results are immediate upon completion of the test.

is noisy and who are required to be accurate in their communications. For

the tests is about $40/subject depending upon volume. Dr. John Allan, President,

in a Noisy Environment ™ is not a clinical hearing test, but a specially designed
test to evaluate a subject's ability to understand speech in a noisy environment."
