Talk Forward is the feature to allow the audiologist to talk to the patient through a microphone. The patient then hears spoken words through the conduction that has been selected (speakers, headphone, etc...).
Talk Back is the feature to allow the patient to talk to the audiologist through a microphone. The audiologist then hears the patient through a headphone.
Monitor is the feature to allow the audiologist to hear the stimulus or the masking sound through his/her headphone.
For all these features, the microphones and headphones must be correctly connected to the audiologist's computer and they must be activated in Windows' Sound Setting.
Whenever an audiometer supports a talk-forward function, Audiqueen enables the corresponding button in the test execution window.

while the Talk Forward Intensity Window is displayed
to control the intensity of the sound.
