How do voices sound with a Cochlear implant?
ďDo the voices sound like a robot, or are they just as how people that are not deaf hear them?Ē Thatís a really good question one that I think is asked frequently and the answer is misunderstood so I will try to explain.
Deafness, social media and security
Someone has been impersonating my daughter on the internet and it got me wondering about what I tell people in social media. How could this affect my personal security and identity - especially as a deaf person.
When will I hear with my Cochlear Implant?
Many of us haven't heard for years. We can't get in touch with what it might be like to hear without the constant need for lip reading, watching people, being extra alert and feeling exhausted most of the time. So when will I hear with my Cochlear Implant?
Airport Security and cochlear implants
How does airport security affect me and my cochlear implant and other devices I need to carry?
Music and My Cochlear Implant
Music was one thing I was told I would not be able to enjoy when I had my first Cochlear Implant. So it was a surprise when a few months after switch on I was enjoying music, bought a new piano and started playing again.
Bigotry and deafness
Bigotry is caused by misunderstanding and a failure to tolerate another personís point of view. Some people seem to think that the way they think is right and everyone else isnít entitled to be different.
Deafness in a digital age
Weíve come a long way since ear trumpets, the town crier or even party line telephones. Never before has there been so many options for communication and never before has this communication removed many of the barriers and given Deaf/deaf people access.
Path to a Cochlear Implant
How do you get a Cochlear Implant? How do you qualify? Where can you get one? Itís a question I get asked often and although it is different in every country the steps are sure to be similar.
Difficulties socialising if deaf
Deafness is not very well understood by the general public and is a very isolating issue to have.
How Deaf is Deaf?
It is different for everyone and does depend on what the cause of deafness is, but Deaf/deafened can be totally deaf and get no sound at all, or may still get some very loud sound, in just a few frequencies or it could be distorted.
