This is a practice screen before starting the test

Proceed to test
  1. Check that your sound works when you click play.
  1. Type whatever you hear, then press enter. Don’t worry about spelling.
You will score better if you guess anything, even a nonsense word.
Please re-type with standard English alphabetic characters only.
You should guess; only use the “did not hear” button if you really have no idea. If the “play” button didn’t make any noise at all, please check that your speakers or headphones are switched on and plugged in, and that your computer’s volume dial is set to a reasonable volume (and not muted).
You will only hear each word once.
