Human Voice Audio: Human Voice Audio is available at no additional cost to BDS (and its subsidiaries) test users. Human Voice Audio (HVA) helps respondents overcome many test-related reading impairments and cultural-related issues. HVA is available in English and Spanish. In brief, one’s passive vocabulary (what a person hears and understands) is usually greater than their active (spoken) vocabulary. Having test instructions, questions and answers read out loud in the client’s (patient/offender’s) native or dominant language helps reduce communication and cultural issues. Each question (or answer) is highlighted on the computer screen (monitor) as it is simultaneously read to the client in English or Spanish. The client can go back-and-forth as many times as needed for clarification. When the client selects their answer, the program advances to the next question.
