The effects of two requests for repetition by aided listeners on talker intensity were compared. On average, the simple repetition request "What did you say?" was as effective as the statement "I have a hearing loss, what did you say?" However, the effect of the second statement was more consistent across talkers. In addition to increasing intensity, several talkers used additional strategies to enhance the reception of their message. The data suggest that use of repetition requests by persons with hearing loss is effective, and support the notion that informing the talker that hearing loss is present may be beneficial.
