Click on this support page as a good starting point for understanding Custom Test Types.

You can create any test type of your choice.  A test type is represented by a button in the ribbon. 

Note: You need to be an Audiqueen administrator to perform this action!

This is how you create a new Custom Test Type in 3 steps...

1. Create a new Custom Test Type

Create a new test type by opening the Test Management window and clicking on New Test:

2. Configure the new Test Type

In the Test Management window:

  • fill out the name of the new test type
  • add an icon (right mouse button)
  • if the document with the test result may have been obtained with hearing aids, tick the "add devices" box:  if you tick this option, you can assign hearing aids to the test results when you enter them later (analogous to entering audiometric results)
  • synopsis parameters are parameters that you can add to summarize the test results.  If available, they appear in the grid:
    Synopsis parameters can be created here (see also the support page on synopsis parameters).
    You can set them as an index (see support page), which means they will appear in the index column of the grid.

  • Now you decide whether to allow manual input only (you can then attach files manually) or to activate one of the built-in modules (see also the support page on Custom Test Types)

3. Pick a built-in module to fetch and save the document or file (optional)

If you choose to do so, pick one of the available modules... 

  • Easy File Fetcher

The Easy File Fetcher is a built-in module to automatically open another app from Audiqueen, generate a document with it and load that document into Audiqueen.  See this support page to find how how to configure and use the Easy File Fetcher. The other app can actually be anything, such as:

  • a document scanner: if the scanner saves a document, Audiqueen can automatically retrieve and load that document; depending on the configuration, Audiqueen can also open the scanner app and load the document only after closing the scanner app.  See the following support pages for specific instructions for a document scanner.
  • the software associated with a medical device, such as an audiological device (ABR, OAE, ENG, Rhinomanometry, etc.): Audiqueen then opens that proprietary software, finds the report you save with it at the end of the audiological examination, and automatically uploads it.  See the following support pages for specific instructions for evoked potentials,  vestibular exams (ENG, VNG, VHIT), otoacoustic emissions, stabilometry.
  • software with which you create documents: these can be all types of documents, such as MS Word documents, MS PowerPoint, MS Excel, or also drawings, etc.  Audiqueen then opens that software, possibly with a template document you created earlier, and loads the document you save at the end.
  • Multimedia Capture

If you wish to take photos or videos with a digital camera, it is best to use Audiqueen's built-in Multimedia Capture module.  You can use a webcam, or a digital camera connected to your endoscope or microscope.  The controls to take photos or start or stop a video are done using the keyboard or a foot pedal available separately. See this support page to find out how to configure and use the Multimedia Capture module.

  • Text Editor

Audiqueen also has its own text editor.  It allows you to create text documents without needing MS Word.  These can be new documents from scratch or document templates that you then use to create individualised documents for a particular patient.  See this support page to find out how to use Audiqueen's built-in Text Editor.

  • Draw

Draw is Audiqueen's built-in drawing module.  It is a module that includes a set of anatomical images and some simple drawing options.  See this support page to find out how to configure and use this Draw module.
