It is our continued effort here at Bengal Speech that you lead a normal everyday life despite your hearing loss. Keeping this aim in mind, we bring you innovative digital hearing aids and technology that makes life simpler for you. Hearing loss is an affliction that can be conquered if you have help. That is what we try to provide you. As in a normal life you would have phone conversations, it cannot and should not be any different for those with hearing impairment.
Our audiologists have drawn up some tips that you can try to improve hearing during phone conversations. For example, you should try to keep the phone on speaker mode while talking at home or office. These are places with little or no ambient noise. As a result, noise does not interfere with your conversation, making the speaker mode a safe bet. Moreover, you are more likely to hear better with two ears than one.
Of course, if you can sync your phone with the hearing machine, there is nothing like it! You will have to get an expert to do it for you. You also need special types of digital hearing aids in order to achieve that. Wireless hearing aids give you the luxury of syncing conversation through Bluetooth. You will hear the words right inside your ear, as if the speaker is seated next to you! The words come through clearly and you will rarely get garbled pronunciations.
Since we are talking about technology, why should you confine yourself to the old world phone conversations only? Why not try the calls that you can place over the internet? Calls over Skype or FaceTime are useful for a number of reasons, especially for those with hearing loss. When you can see the person talking to you, you are more likely to get the words clearly mainly because you can see the lip movements of the speaker. For anyone with hearing loss, seeing the speaker speak is a huge plus!
These quick fixes should resolve hiccups in phone conversations. Who can say that in the next few months, you will find some new technology surfacing that will make this process even simpler? As of now, take a leaf out of the book suggested by our audiologists regarding phone calls. If your problems persist or new ones crop up, get in touch with our team at Bengal Speech.
