Select Audiometry and click on Manual Input in the ribbon. You can now enter some test details, like the test date, the tester, some remarks. Also, you enter whether the test was performed with or without hearing aids. For this you click on the question marks to toggle between different hearing aids (if assigned to the patient) or you use the shortcut buttons Active or None. Active will select the active aids for both sides, none will select no hearing aids for both ears. You find assistance on how to assign hearing aids to a patient in the Devices section.

You can change the scales or the resolution of the horizontal (Frequency Resolution) and the vertical (Intensity Resolution) axis. The typical Frequency Resolution is Standard, but you can choose for half an octave or even smaller. The typical Intensity Resolution is 5 dB, but you can choose any value between 1 and 20 dB.
Then you choose the side (right, left or both). ‘Both sides’ is used when both ears were receiving the stimulus during testing. The typical case is sound field testing. In this case, the thresholds are displayed on both the left and the right audiogram and the symbol for both ears is used.
Then you choose the conduction, which can be air conduction (headphones or insert phones or free field), bone conduction, or audio cable (mainly used for cochlear implant testing).
Available conductors: headphones, insert phones, bone conductor, free field speakers, audio cable, Otocube
And finally you choose the stimulus used, which can be pure tone, pulsed tone, warble tone or narrow band noise.
Available symbols for audiometric stimuli
Thresholds are entered by placing the pointer on the graph and either double-clicking or clicking Spacebar on the keybord. Use the right mouse button to change the response type (masked or unmasked, response or no response).
