Hand held microphones that can be used with hearing aids

I am a hearing aid user, and have found the TV streamer to be a Godsend!! Prior to buying the streamer, I used closed captioning 100% of the time when watching TV, due to a lack of clarity. The streamer removes any background noise, and makes listening so much clearer and easier. I am able to adjust my volume independently from the TV, so everyone listens at their own comfort level. I no longer use CC. In selected situations, I also use the "listen live" microphone feature on my iPhone in conjunction with my hearing aids. It can be helpful in noisy environments, but I find that people tend to be curious when I hold/point the iPhone in their direction. I typically have to explain that I am not recording them, but am simply using the microphone feature for my hearing aids. Best wishes!!!

Hello Bec, I cannot see well so hopefully: Can this hand held microphone help me by looking at an object in my hand in the grocery store and read to me the fine letters and price numbers on it? Miracle of miracles. Peach
