    Airports!! I hate them.

    Can you read English reasonably well? Having Live Transcribe on an Android phone (or other similar apps on an Android or iPhone) might might really help you get what is being said to you. Google Live Transcribe and you will get a lot more information about it than I can write here.

    What are you thinking about? Part VIII

    SneskerNet You are forgetting that she didn't say it had to be portable. Thus, you are leaving out piano, organ and electronic keyboards.

    Using sign language interpreter during a medical exam

    The way you have written in composing your post I get the impression that you read at least English just fine. Do you happen to have a cell phone that runs the Android OS (I do not have an iPhone so do not know how what is available for them works.)? One thing I find really helpful is make...

    Rechargeable Hearing Aids

    How much is a portable power bank that would hold enough to recharge them nightly? Or a solar power bank that could be carried while recharging on the go during the day.

    Rechargeable hearing aids???

    I have started seeing TV ads for rechargeable hearing aids. There seems to me to be a major problem with that idea in that you can't hear with them while recharging? Years ago I had some rechargeable 675 batteries that worked but ran down before the end of my day. It was inconvenient but in...

    Worst CC on TV?

    I am glad I found this again. I have been wanting to thank SeakerNet for the yellow text suggestion. I have left mine set that way and am enjoying it on everything I have been able to set that way.

    Worst CC on TV?

    I decided to set Black Background with Yellow Texts after seeing SeakerNet's mention of setting his that way. It has just been a few days as I didn't change mine the day SeakerNet posted the idea but I think I am going to like it. Wish we could set to all caps on everything as well.

    Worst CC on TV?

    I can't come up with examples at the moment but think I have seen some that scroll rather that just show a certain amount at a time and then show another amount. It seems easier to read scrolling captions.
