Interest on hearing, voice and language has been present in occidental cultures for hundreds of years. There are many examples to mention: Cardano in Padova, Ponce de Leon and Bonet in Spain, L’Epée in France and Heinecke in Germany. American Continent also had important pioneers: Gallaudet, Hubbard, Clarke and Graham Bell and more recently, Weber, Békésy and Jerger. The basic mechanical sound amplification instruments were followed by the first hearing aids, audiometers and computerized equipments and by the actual digital aids and cochlear implants.
