Can the deaf drive?
When the issue of deaf people driving is discussed I donít think it is about discrimination but about safety. Is a deaf driver as safe a driver as a hearing driver? Does the lack of hearing impact on safety?

Can't hear - What's missing?
One in four adults over the age of 50 experience a hearing problem and three in four over the age of 75. When this happens it is usually gradual and often we do not even realise we are missing sounds.

Captioned Radio
It's been talked about for years...but it still seems a long way off. This article looks at some of the issues with digital radio providing captions.

Captioned Telephones
For those of us who go deaf using a phone is just about impossible. Technology has bridged the gap but live conversations still pose a challenge. This article details my first impressions of a captioned telephone and service.

Captioned Theatre
Equal access for the hearing impaired has long been an issue so it was nice to have captioned theatre available in my city. This is how it worked for me.

Captioning/subtitles for the deaf
Closed captions, or subtitles, can enhance the experience whether you are watching television, you are at the movies, at the theatre, in an aircraft or airport, hospital, shopping mall or on the internet. There are even noisy environments where captioning can benefit people with full hearing.

Captiview Movie experience
Recently I went to the movies to trial the latest close captioning system available in our area.

Cars and deafness
What should you be able to hear if you drive a car? To a hearing person this would seem a superfluous question Ė and probably they would say nothing! But in fact there are many noises we take for granted and others which should raise the alarm.

Causes of hearing loss
There are many reasons for deafness. Diseases or viruses during pregnancy, in childhood and later life, hereditary factors, exposure to loud noise, head injuries, ototoxic drugs, allergic reactions and aging can all be causes of deafness.

Celebration Hearing
Weíve just had Christmas and today itís New Yearís Eve. Like most people weíve had parties and dinners. For about 20 years I blundered through these things, using the Ďhope Iím smiling rightí smile so I didnít look too stupid or hopefully to indicate I was understanding and being part of the group.
