Experience with patient-controlled audiometers in a clinical setting suggests that group testing can be accomplished satisfactorily with most adult subjects. Some of the findings and a comparison of results obtained with automatic and conventional audiometry are presented as a basis for evaluating this means of auditory screening.

Certain problems inherent in the procedure appear to make it impractical for some clinical patients.
