Amount of hearing that is still present after damage has occurred to the auditory mechanism.
That part of a partially deaf person's hearing that still operates is known as residual hearing.
The amount of hearing a deaf or hard of hearing person has, as indicated on an audiogram.
This is the term used to describe the hearing that remains after a hearing loss occurs. Most people with significant hearing loss still have some residual hearing that can be stimulated by amplifying sound using a hearing aid. However, the remaining hearing often does not provide enough clarity for a hearing aid to be of much benefit. These are the individuals who are candidates for cochlear implantation.
The amount of usable hearing that a person with hearing loss has.
Hearing available to a deaf or hard of hearing person.
Any measurable hearing that a hearing-impaired individual retains.
