Approximately 25% of LACE’s total adaptive training is focused on Rapid Speech. The Rapid Speech tasks consist of sentences spoken by a single speaker at varying speeds. You will hear a sentence and be prompted to repeat as much of the sentence as you understand, either aloud or silently. You will then be presented with the written form of the sentence and asked to indicate whether you understood every word of the sentence with a “No” or “Yes” response (as shown in the example screenshot). 

As you improve, the compression ratio (CR) – or speed – of the speech in the exercises increases. LACE adapts to your responses, so you’ll remain challenged through all 11 sessions.
