Tele-audiology has grown considerably since Swanepoel and Hall’s literature review in 2010. Numerous new works on telehealth have appeared in areas of diagnosis, pediatric audiology, rehabilitation, cochlear implants, screening, web portals, and hearing aids. Asynchronous solutions are now more common for screening and diagnostic purposes. In addition, self-assessment and m-health systems are available which offer accessible and valid paradigms. In general, tele-audiology appears to be an increasingly useful method for providing hearing healthcare access to consumers anytime and anywhere.
