Ongoing Surveys

Project: Indirect impacts of COVID-19 on hearing and communication

Researchers at the University of Manchester are looking for volunteers to complete a short online questionnaire about ways in which face coverings affect hearing and communication.

There are two parts to the questionnaire.

  • The first part can be completed by anyone over age 18. It asks about your experiences communicating with someone who was wearing a face, when you are wearing face mask as well as some questions about face masks in general.
  • The second part should be completed by parents who have a child with hearing loss. It asks about your experiences with audiology, hearing aids and face covering since COVID-19 began.

The questionnaire will take 10-15 min. to complete.

There are no risks to taking part and all responses will remain anonymous.
