    TTY and macs

    I do have access to a landline but the phones these days will not sit well in/on the couplers on the ttys I have so that's out (unless there's still a rotary/push button phone lurking around here somewhere). I did check out eBay to see if there were any compact/C ttys listed... none so far...

    hearing aids not accepted in the Deaf community 20 years ago?!?!?

    Today and 20 years ago are miles different... And.. yes there were quite a few D/deaf at Gallaudet 30-35 years ago who were no fans of hearing aids at all. Many refused to wear them; had one friend who grew up oral...came to Gallaudet and pretty much refused to wear her aids again; they...

    Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock - Questions....

    I still have the old model with green led light... I love it.... still works but finicky on some days (it's 17 years old). I never thought to turn it around but what I do is put a thick paper (actually an envelope (mail that I never opened lol) over the display- blocks out most of the light (I...

    Does Gallaudet have a pre-medical program?

    Hmm as far as I know I don't think they do. They do have science majors like biology and chemistry. A relative of mine has a BS in Public Health (or something like that I can't remember right now) and is currently in their first year of med school (person is not deaf though).

    Remember hearing aids in eye glass temples?

    One of my old Gallaudet friends had a pair of glasses with hearing aids built in. Or maybe a pair of hearing aids with glasses attached...? :hmm: Anyway-- that was in the mid 80s. I don't know how long he kept them though- I know he doesn't have them any more from recent pics I've seen of...

    IPhone TTY app with VCO

    I don't know what version iPhone you have but this link was posted in another threat I posted a while back. https://9to5mac.com/2018/12/05/real-time-text-on-ios-and-macos/ I'd be curious to know what TTY apps you had...I don't think I've found any- at least for Android.

    TTY and macs

    I did finally go "box diving" and searching all of them... and found my Compact TTY. Unfortunately it will not work with cell phones. My Galaxy phone does have TTY mode though. Tried looking for the Compact/C (a newer version of the Compact TTY) but could not find it as it apparently has...

    A Thread About Absolutely Nothing! Part III

    yes it's still usable thankfully. And since that post I dropped it a second time at my workplace... and a chip off the top right corner. I think the crack on the bottom is spreading though. Hope to get to the BatteriesPlus store this weekend... after I make sure I HAVE money! I had an...

    Galaxy Note 8 Smartphone

    Yes... it's not a job I really wanted though- nothing related to IT at all and the pay isn't the best...and a lot of physical work. But it's work. I got it through a tip and some help from VR. In the meantime I'm still working on trying to build up my portfolio and improving my coding so I...

    Let’s help each other please

    I shall do that.. May be a while as I'm still adjusting to this new job (quite a bit of moving around and lifting/moving around stuff) and schedule. Not IT related at all- it's a big "sidetrack"/divert from my background/skills but hey... job is a job and I needed it for a couple of reasons.

    TTY and macs

    Yeah- I was passively looking at options for tty on android.. or borrow my niece's iPhone lol. I may look harder for that in the meantime til I can find a good solution for laptop/desktop.

    Galaxy Note 8 Smartphone

    Ohh Hmm yes we do- there's one about < 10 minutes from here. I'll have to swing by next week on my days off. (and take my dead hearing aid batteries and see if they recycle). Thanks! I had seen BatteriesPlus in my google search but wasn't sure. And it's good as I never got a warranty on my...

    Will I Die Alone?

    Nope not a Deaf thing that's for sure. I am Deaf and know a few people- hearing and deaf (and deafblind) who are lonely and want a sexual relationship or companion to share their lives. I've never met anyone asexual though...agender maybe.. but that's besides the point of the topic.

    TTY and macs

    Is it possible turn my macbook pro laptop into a TTY? Or my Windows desktop (if I ever hook it back up and figure out if the HDD is really dying or if it's salvageable). Just wondering as I want to call a specific office but don't want to do voice or through VRS for security reasons; they...
