    I'm back!

    Been gone a while and what a ride it's been! A lot has changed since I last had the chance and time to get online and come over to AllDeaf. :wave: First off, we no longer live in Georgia anymore...we now live in a place called Grayson, Ky. Quite pretty, quite rural. LOL I was also blessed...

    Any recommendations of which digital aids best resemble analogue?

    Hmmmm...maybe since I have never had any sort of hearing aids before I will adjust quickly to the digital ones. I truly hope they do help. While the little buggers don't come cheap, they are still far less expensive than the implants. I have only just recently been granted...

    Any recommendations of which digital aids best resemble analogue?

    Hmmm...I am being fitted with digital hearing aids for the first time. I've never had hearing aids of any sort before. Not even sure if they will work. I go Nov. 8 to get them and have them adjusted or whatever they do. I don't even know what brand they are. I only hope that they work even a...

    Need to Interview People for a College Inquiry Project

    Well, April, I am not sure exactly what kind of interview you need...but I am deaf, no implants of any sort. I am being fitted for some type of digital hearing aids in two weeks. I don't know what kind they are really. I had the molds of my ears taken yesterday. I wasn't born deaf. I started...

    Do complaints about CC do any good?

    I know I have tried complaining to YouTube officials or whoever is in charge to correct the CC on the stuff they have...because it sucks. I have tried watching American Horror Story as well, and the CC on it was so bad that it was just gobbledygook. I have a hell of a time finding anything...

    Yet another ASL student *sigh*

    WELCOME! I have been a student of ASL for several months now. My hearing finally pooped out this past year and I realized I was going to have to learn how to sign.

    18 Deaf passaengers kicked out from plane over security concern

    Uh...WTF? I have lost my hearing...not my mobility. I don't know whether to laugh or just be disgusted at the stupidity shown here. Both I think. *laughs derisively*

    Why are you deaf?

    I lost my hearing due to several reasons...menieres, an abusive boyfriend some years back, ear infections as a child, and an abusive step-father. It was a gradual thing at first...but then BAM! This last year the hearing went the way of the Dodo. Eh, I miss a few things...but being Deaf is ok...

    Windows and Microsoft SUCKS! So, here's what I did about it...

    Hmmm.... I volunteer at Free IT Athens, we refurb computers and then give them to schools, the disabled, etc. Or, people can buy them really cheap, ($50), to help fund our organization. We get a lot of desk tops donated,mostly Gateways, Dells and ASUS. If a person is basically all thumbs and...

    Windows and Microsoft SUCKS! So, here's what I did about it...

    What UNIX GUI OS?

    I have had no issues with it. It works great with everything I had with the windows OS. There is the WINE program to help you run windows programs if you want/need to...and then there is the PLAYONLINUX program to be able to play games the run in the windows OS...say for instance like Diablo...
