Better Speech and Hearing month 2013
May is Better Speech and Hearing month.
Losing our processors or hearing aids
When we rely on some sort of device to hear it can be devastating if we lose or damage one. I asked a group of people had they ever lost one.
Dishwashers, washing machines, tumble dryers, kitchen gadgets of all sorts. Then there are our modern toys. All these things to make our lives easier, to help us communicate, easier, better and give us more free time. But do we really have more?
Insuring hearing devices
Recently, I asked a group of people if they do insure their implant processors and if so how they do it.
What fashions our music tastes and how does it develop? What happens if we go deaf? We are no longer exposed to the nuances of music so how does this affect our music taste?
Born deaf now hearing
