Good luck on your search for the holy grail, that gives CI a 100% sucess, with no nasty numbers on exceptions, like 77-75 % failure in uttering properly in sentence-intial words.
Exactly where did any of those of us who use CI's or have kids with CI's state anything about 100% success? I'm really curious. I concider mine to be a success and I only tested in the mid 80's. The thing is I got what I wanted from it. While there may be some idiots who get the Ci's thinking that the results will be 100% around here I don't see that expectation. I don't see it on other CI lists I'm on either.
It doesn't say but I would think the 46 to 97 involves different sounds which were measured separately. That could be written better.
