@sag I’m new to participate, but have been reading Connect for a while and am so impressed at the help/sharing by so many. I’m going to be evaluated for a CI in several weeks, currently wear HAs. One ear is severe to profound loss and the other is moderate to severe. I want to find out all I can about the accessories that go with HA’s and the pros and cons of CIs to decide whether to stay with HAs or get a CI, if I qualify. The technology is overwhelming. First question is from reply just above in reference to a feature on an iPhone called “listen live”. Is “listen live” a speech to text transmission app for an iPhone and is it available in the App Store? I’ve seen several entries that comment on background noise, but I’d like to at least give it a try. Also @bec just above says “it is beneficial when the person I want to hear is pithing 2 -3 feet from my iPhone”? What does that mean? Thank you.
