“However, it’s not necessarily clearer,” she went on to say, “I notice sounds, many times not knowing what they are. It’s often alarming. But, yet I have found it’s not always clearer. I watch others reactions and can tell by how how they respond I know I’m not hearing or comprehending speech as others do. Other sounds, like a squeak or a kitchen appliance sound, or even the door bell is heard loudly and harsh.”
She went on. “I would simply like the sounds and my world to be clearer and to enjoy hearing others and even the television. We are on the right path to now helping and improving this patients quality of hearing and life. There are many wonderful hearing aid technologies that can improve speech clarity and offer control of background noises.”
No one wants to hear just a bunch of loud noise. We all want things to be clear and enjoyable!
That’s true, noise isn’t very appealing. Clear and understandable are the important things.
I can relate.
Right on Dale….:)
It doesn’t help much if people are mumbling or talking low either.
That’s a good point Tiffany. The way others talk can affect how people hear and understand.
masks don’t help either, right?
Technical adjustments are so important to the process.
Yes the sure are Mary! Good point!
