Update: November 22, 2016
We have just found a new paper (Holden et al., 2016) which shows that SMRT correlates significantly with CNC words in quiet, AzBio in quiet, AzBio in Noise, and HINT sentences in R-Space for cochlear implant users. This result has now been replicated in Zhou (2017).
BUG WARNING FOR EUROPEAN COMPUTERS:
There is a bug running the SMRT on computers which display decimals with a comma (i.e. 24,3). It can be fixed by switching the PC to use a period. Instructions on how to do so are here.
Upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1
To upgrade from 1.0 to 1.1, only the .EXE file needs to be updated. You can upgrade your current installation of SMRT 1.0 by extracting the .EXE file from the 1.1 distribution and overwriting just your old SMRT.EXE file. Please backup your SMRT directory, including log files before upgrading!
Fixed randomization bug
Changed Abort button to Pause Button. When Paused, the operator can now choose to abort or continue.
Added visual feedback that a button has been pressed.
