Roger™ Dynamic SoundField System

Lively discussions and interactions between teachers and students are vital for effective learning. However, classroom acoustics are usually less than ideal and teachers are often speaking to students from a distance when they teach. This means that a child’s daily learning environment comes with many listening challenges.

Fortunately, with Roger SoundField, these challenges can be easily overcome. Roger SoundField effectively distributes sound from the teacher, students and other sound sources throughout the entire classroom.

The Mainstream Amplification Resource Room Study (MARRS) revealed that soundfield systems decrease background noise and help children pay attention, hear and understand the teacher better. It also reported improvements in reading and language scores for thousands of students in classrooms that use soundfield technology.

Unrivaled Performance

In order to understand speech in noisy classrooms, children require a better signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Roger SoundField significantly boosts a young student’s chance for academic success by providing an improved acoustic environment for listening and learning.

Offering best-ever speech-in-noise improvements for normal hearing children of up to 28% at 65 dBA of noise and 50% at 70 dBA over no soundfield, Roger SoundField is in a class of its own.

Benefits for teachers

Noisy classrooms can result in teachers suffering from vocal strain – leading to poor vocal health in the long term and increased costs due to teacher absences. A survey in the UK by the Royal National Institute for Deaf People revealed that 59% of schools reported teaching days being lost due to vocal strain. 

A recent study in Brazil showed that using Roger SoundField in a classroom, for just one period of the school day, was enough to improve dry throat symptoms, voice quality, fatigue while talking and vocal strain in teachers.

The risk of longer-term vocal health problems is also lower and because teachers need to repeat themselves less often, there’s more time in class to cover lesson material.

Students being able to hear and respond to instructions better has not only shown improvements in academic performances but in-class discipline is also easier to maintain.

Schools perform better financially too, thanks to reduced teacher absenteeism due to voice loss – and reduced replacement-teacher costs.
