Reply To: 10 Feb 18 – Assistive Technology Devices
Having a severe hearing loss, I can certainly vouch for what hearing aids can do for people like myself.
However, even with the hearing aids, the frequency response of one ear is far different from the other, As a result, I can only really communicate on a telephone using a speakerphone, where both ears get to work together.
One popular talk-in radio show makes the announcement “they haven’t invented a good speakerphone yet — don’t use one”, and that rules out my calling in. So, I guess a good speakerphone is still on the list of things to qualify as an ATD.
