    Earmold question

    You might want to have your audiologist make you a new one from a different manufacturer. Even though the current one is made from hypoallergenic material that is no guarantee that you are not allergic to something used in the brand you now have.

    new law?

    My understanding is that it has been around for several years that they have to offer one. Not that they have to have one without asking you first.

    Was the cochlea malformed on both sides? If just one, what is the other side like?

    What's your earliest memory?

    I am old enough to know what a ringer washer is! And I grew up doing something similar to warm up when going to bed in the winter. We used a Ziegler Oil Stove as the only main floor heat (a smaller one was in the basement and only on on wash day or when doing a longer project in the basement)...

    people thinking i'm faking deafness...

    A few ideas and a pleasant story; so this thread isn't ALL complaints! How might they react to "I learned to talk before I lost my hearing"? Another of the things I like about having a corded mic plugged into my phone is that by holding just the mic close to them keeps me from covering the mic...

    What are you thinking about? Part VIII

    I am in Illinois so not threatened by any of the current fires but keep seeing on TV about sudden notices to get out. That makes me wonder if many people are packing up even if not threatened now so they can leave at a moments notice if a new one starts or one moves a different way than it had...

    What are you thinking about? Part VIII

    MONEY and favorite app Live Transcribe among others. Back when first looking at smartphones years ago they just didn't seem to have enough more value for the price and I have not regretted going with the Android OS.

    What are you thinking about? Part VIII

    Why does it have to be an Iphone? I have been happy with an inexpensive smartphone that uses the Android OS.

    What's your earliest memory?

    I don't know what my earliest memory is because I had an aunt that was really into photography both still and movies and my parents took photos with Dad also also taking a lot of movies. With all of that there was quite a time that I don't know what is memory of what was happening and what is...

    Is There A Voice To Text Device In One Hand Held Device?

    Live Transcribe for iOS is new to me (which makes sense since I have never had an iPhone). I do wonder if the similarity in the names is going to cause problems. I did do a Google search about them and one of the best descriptions I came across was on a site call hearinglikeme. I am qouting...

    What are you thinking about? Part VIII

    Peanut because it is made of peanuts. Butter because it is a similar consistency to room temp. butter.

    Google scholars???? What made you think most of us would look there?

    people thinking i'm faking deafness...

    What I find helpful about the corded mic is it can be held closer to the sound source (someone talking in person, computer speaker, TV speaker, etc.) and still get the screen of the phone in a position that is easy for me to read. I wear trifocal glasses so where the phone screen is makes more...

    Agreed. I wish more of those that would not would tell us why!
