Abstract : A well-known strategy in recalling spoken digits presented two at a time, one to each ear, is to report the digits channel by channel, where each ear constitutes a separate channel. A technique is described for presenting digits three at a time, one to each ear and a third to both ears at once. In this three-channel situation subjects could generally report at least some information from all three channels; however, channel by channel report was not in general an efficient recall strategy.
