Everybody has the right to hear

My advocacy work continues… I’m experimenting with assistive technology that can help people with hearing loss.  While my cochlear implant helps me hear better it doesn’t solve all hearing challenges.  In particular, noisy environments and large meetings.

Today I tested an infrared transmitter and receiver to hear better in meetings at work. It was pretty cool and did help.  The equipment is on loan so I’m sending some questions to the vendor.  In New Jersey I think.

They replied and signed their email “Everybody has the right to hear.”  I love that statement and I’m gaining the experience and courage to believe it.
