as for pitch perception, i'm not sure what she hears. The processor is a speech processor, so it targets spoken language. I have no idea how she perceives music.
again, NO she does not have typical hearing, but she is able to discriminate all the sounds of spoken language. How do i know? Because she does it.
You do understand, do you not, that pitch and timbre don't only involve music? They are important parts of the perception of speech.
