[access-uk] Re: Hearing aids stuff

Yes, this is true, because when I got my two digital aids they weren't set
up for loop capability but I didn't get on with them anyway so I reverted
back to my computerised ones which were smaller too and as I only have very
small ears I found these far better as I kept loosing my digitals off!

Regarding loops, why doesn't anyone seem to use the room loop?  I have both
nick and room loop and I know I never use the neck loop whilst at home
because I can put anything I want into the room loop and once I put my
hearing aid on the T possition I can go anywhere in my house and even sit
outside and still hear whats I am playing, its the difference in having
cordded and cordless headphones!  I wouldn't be without my room loop.

Hi again.

Firstly I'm glad people think this is on topic, I'm always amazed at the
number of people like myself who are dealing with the combination of visual
and hearing impairment, and certainly for me I feel that hearing aid
technology is now the best it's ever been.
so in answer to the question of how I get audio directly into my hearing
aids.
Most hearing aids have the ability to connect an audio Input shoe, with
clips onto the battery compartment sometimes increasing the overall size of
the aid slightly. With some aids, like the ones I use which are the Phonak
Savia, the input shoes can be left permanently in place with other older
aids you clip/unclip them as and when required.
I wear two hearing aids so have a lead with on one end has two small two pin
plugs, one plugging into each input shoe. On the other end of the lead is a
3.5 inch plug which I connect to whatever I want to listen to.
From my daisy talking book player to my MP3 player to my mixing desk, I can
listen to high quality sound without any discomfort.

I hope that answers that aspect of how I work, a good site to go for
information about audio input shoes for specific hearing aids is
www.deafequipement.co.uk

I would though say that especially if you have digital hearing aids it is
likely that the aids will need to be programmed to work optimally, so if
have one talk to your hearing aid professional to ensure things are set up
as best as they can be and thus you get the best sound you can.
