We are excited to have Michele Linder present at our HLAA chapter meeting on November 17th from 10 AM to noon on traveling with a hearing loss. Get over your fear of traveling with hearing loss! Michele has good tips and strategies on conquering solo traveling. Michele has no usable hearing and gets by on lipreading (and sometimes notes back and forth) in life as well as traveling in foreign countries successfully. Also, chapter members Charla and Kevin will tell us how to make sure cruise ships are accessible to our hearing loss.
We have Susan from Access Simplified’s Medical Access App coming to our meeting to talk for about 30 minutes. She’s looking for feedback on the app they are creating which enables people with various forms of hearing loss to immediately communicate with medical staff at hospitals. The app uses pre-recorded videos with choice of text or ASL and captions along with audio to convey standard phrases and questions you would encounter in a medical setting. The app is interactive which allows the patient, visitor or staff to respond by pressing buttons. Check it out and your feedback is greatly appreciated.
When Susan is done, the games will begin, join us!
