2 days ago · Hearing Loss: Come introduce yourself and connect with others in Hearing Loss

Answer is yes so will recycle power…thanks

Even before doing that the app worked beautifully this morning in the house to pick up Skype conversation….wierd! So maybe it needs a stronger Wi-Fi than do the other two speech to text apps and is more affected.

Hi,

It blinks that it is sensing the speaker but shows no captions for up to a minute…then starts and restops again. Closing and reopening the app only sometimes helps. I am not usually in noisey
environments.

Thanks for your reply
As for the app, after talking to Google I cleared the cache. It did not help much.
As for mike, the pixel 3 is only six months old. Otter and ava work much better than live transcribe now when I try one after the other in the same situation.
I will look into an external mike.

Hi.

I agree that Innocaption is great.

Do you by any chance also use Live Transcribe? I have loved it for a year but now am having problems with it.

Dec 7, 2019 · Hearing Loss: Come introduce yourself and connect with others in Hearing Loss

I retired in 2010. I functioned ok in normal situations but not in meetings. I wore one aid and was deaf in other ear. I functioned ok with aid, lip reading and captioned tv. My hearing got progressively worse the past nine years. Now at 73 my aid basically is for volume. Discrimination is poor. So the audiologist recommends testing for a cochlear implant.

I too have accepted my hearing loss and am reluctant to undergo the trials and tribulations of an implant evaluation, operation and followup. My excuse now is I am waiting for an ease of the massive medical travel commitments necessary.

Thank you so much for the reply. My situation is so much like yours. My loss was caused by otosclerosis, which may complicate things. So I will begin the evaluation process soon.

Sep 4, 2019 · Cochlear Implants in Hearing Loss

I am considering an implant in left ear, which has a hearing aid. My right ear is almost totally dead. Is it true that hearing through the implant is very different than with an aid since it goes directly to the auditory nerve? Does that mean that all of my hearing that was from the aid will be gone? The aid had helped with volume and my lip reading, but discrimination was very poor. Thanks

I agree that sometimes people have trouble hearing with with InnoCaption on my Google 3 cell, but usually it is fine.
Clear Captions is only for an iPhone.
