Noise is Beautiful
Hearing people take noise granted and often tell us they find sound annoying. But deafened people, particularly those deafened after they have had hearing, miss noise – even the noise hearing people choose to ignore. For those who have regained hearing - Noise is Beautiful.
Noises we hate to hear
Being deaf doesn't necessarily mean we hear nothing and getting hearing back again doesn't always mean we like every sound we hear. I asked a few people what sounds they don't like!
At night, when we take our hearing aids or implant processors off, we can't hear. Ever wonder what you might be missing?
Onomatopoeia's a big word, funny to say and even harder to spell. The dictionary definition is “the formation of a word by imitation of the sound”. So this means a word sounds like a sound.
Open Caption Cinemas
As we start to go deaf many activities we once took for granted become a thing of the past. Going to the movies is one of these because it becomes harder and harder to understand the sound track. But what do you once you can no longer understand speech?
Otosclerosis is a common cause of deafness, particularly for women. What is it?
Not much of us give a thought to ‘Overhearing’. By this I don’t mean eavesdropping but rather hearing parts of conversations which friends, family or colleagues are having around us.
Path to a Cochlear Implant
How do you get a Cochlear Implant? How do you qualify? Where can you get one? It’s a question I get asked often and although it is different in every country the steps are sure to be similar.
Perception of Deaf and Dumb
Fascinated as I was in watching the Deaf children on our school bus, because I had no understanding of deafness, the perception I formed was that these children were mentally deficient, simply because they couldn’t talk like me and my friends.
Perception of music by hearing impaired adults
I attended a lecture by Geoff Plant, AO about Music perception for Cochlear Implantees. Some of the discussion was very interesting.
