    Siemens Lotus 23SP

    Ordered this new HA via eBay. It is very popular in Asian countries. My wife currently has a Lisound 66P analog aid for profoundly deaf folks. After 4 years of use, it has been extremely reliable, much to our surprise....considering we only paid $200. Now that the 66P is obsolete, there is...

    Compliment or Insult?

    When hearing people forget to get your attention before talking to you (such as talking to you while you are not looking), and you remind them more than once, and they reply with "Oh, I'm sorry, I keep forgetting that you are deaf (hearing impaired or whatever you consider yourself)"...

    "Manumatic" transmissions

    I've owned several cars & trucks since I began driving, some were manuals, others were automatics. On all the automatics I've owned, all had manual "D-3-2-1" shifters, and rarely used them to downshift. I have a '07 Sorento EX 4x4 that has the same 3.8L V6 that is used in the Hyundai Genesis...

    Article in the Washington Post..."are farts funny to the deaf?"

    Looks like this was supposed to be a humorous article, but I only found the very last paragraph somewhat amusing. Some of you might find it funny, others will not. I think the reporter should be asking more mature questions about the deaf, not something childish. How about asking us how we...

    ASL Students: Be honest, your reason???

    Be honest. Why do you want to learn ASL? Because it is a cool fad these days? Or because it is just another "foreign language" option that sounds more fun than Spanish, French, etc? Or you really want to get to know that deaf person you have your eyes on?
