Kreul et al. (1968), using three talkers at three speech-to-noise differentials (levels), recorded six of the House et al. (1963, 1965) Modified Rhyme word lists (MRT) for clinical use. Copies of these recordings were sent to several laboratories for further validation studies. Scores from 27 normal listeners from San Diego State College were 2–3% lower than the scores of 75, 83, and 96% found by Kruel et al. (1968). Averaging for all levels and talkers yielded no statistically significant differences among lists. However, there were differences between lists (talkers) within levels. The speech-to-noise differential should conceivably be altered slightly for certain talkers at certain levels to make the list more homogeneous.
