  1. @Mary Beth thank you! Will try that idea out on my parents laptop if they let me!. As mine is not functioning. It is something to consider. @Mary Featherston I agree . There is a feeling that it could be much later than May here in europe. Not confirmed though.
  2. @Mary Beth Not sure at the moment. I'm going to try a few things. Tomorrow will have a look at the router setup . Have looked up in settings on both devices, don't see a problem but then as you say it depend s on the WiFi available. There is possibly ram/ memory issue so will check that too. Still puzzling.
  3. c@Mary Beth@Mary BethThank you for that. Have down loaded onto my phone and my kindle both android devices ( my laptop is in bits at the moment). I have watched your video about the livetranscribe. I think I may have to get a Bluetooth mic, as although it picks up speech, it is no way as zippy as in your video. It is not picking up continuously. It stops and starts then hangs. There is a chance that it is dilect problem. I'm transcribing the BBC news which as expected have variations in speech. Having said that it is impressive, it does correct itself, when it does transcribe. So not sure what the problem is at the moment.

  5. @Jewel sadly no, I don't have an implanted ear to hear from. The activation for the left ear can wait. Fortunately, my family have got used to me miss understanding things!!!
  6. Thank you @Mary Beth. The same to you and your family. Also to everyone here on heerpeers forum. I live out in the campo with parents, both in their late 70s. Like other countries we are in lockdown mode here. my activation date this week had to be cancelled. Although the hospital has said they running as normal over the weekend. Thankfully they have put the processor aside for me. As we are house bound now, travelling down to the coast, is a no no and without a doubt be stopped by the Guardia civil or the Policia Local demanding our reasons for travel. Admittedly a hospital appointment true but not urgent..... So will have to judge how things are before getting in touch with the hospital for another appointment. Personally I think it will be a while. I am gutted is an understatement but better to be safe than sorry at the moment, especially as I live with aging parents, they come first. I have equally older family in the UK........late 80s, 90s!!!! It is a worrying time for all. Keep calm and stay safe, go careful folks! @Jewel @Mary Beth may be one day. I think it would be a fantastic idea remote mapping.
  7. @Mary Beth Had an appointment through the post this morning, my activation is for next Thursday 19th March!! Yay!!!
  8. Thank you @Valentin for explaining a few things. I did wonder on the differences between centres. Does explain the confusion and different opinions recently!! I'm pleased that you are happy with the Rondo. I hope I'll be the same with the processor that I will have. Had an appointment come through the post today, my activation is next week!! Thursday 19th March. Really pleased and excited.
  9. @Mary Beth @Valentin Wow. More confusion!! 😅 Had an email from the Head Office in Madrid. Apparently I had ordered the Rondo 2!!! Will come with the fine tuner, mini battery and artone...... Errr . Not by me..... Maybe my surgeon this round made the order and not the speech therapist.... Ah well will see, when I'm there for activation.
  10. Thank you @Mary Beth for all of that information !! I was wondering how I was going to get round the issue for listening devices for one ear!! I'm glad it's not going to be an issue. I like the sound of the artone and the boss headphones, think I have some saving to do!!!! The audiolink seems to have mixed reviews , I am a little surprised given that it is a MED-EL product, and all of their products have so far been fantastic. If at the activation and it's there, I'll try it. it will be interesting to see what will be provided as part of the accessories. can't wait for the activation, so having to be pacient!!
  11. Thank you!! @Valentin I was implanted at El Clinico ( University Hospital,Malaga). I will be at the day clinic/centre down on the coast in Torremolinos. It was from the surgeon/consultant who mentioned of the rep from Madrid, but then the speech therapist has said completely different!!! For the maintenance I will have to see what it is and what it covers. Ouch batteries expensive. Are they rechargeable or disposable batteries? Thank you for letting me know that I won't have to worry a about the accessories for now. So now I wait for the appointment for the activation. Can't wait!
  12. Sorry !!@Mary Beth . My right ear is considered no go. One day I would like to investigate more to see if there is something that can be done for it. So, I had my op last month for the implant on my left ear and it will be all that I will hear from. I believe I will have one of the sonnets, which one, will see when I get activated. There is a bit of confusion on the sonnets. As in 2016 the speech therapist set up on her computer for the order of the processor which was the Sonnet 1. Now there is Sonnet 2. So I don't know if it be the processor from 2016 or the latest!!! Maybe end of this month or the beginning of April in theory I should have the appointment for the activation. Then I will know!!!!
  13. @Mary Beth I have a question about the artone. Would you think it would work for unilateral hearing? I am thinking ahead as I'm not activated yet. I've been so used to having headphones. I'm now having to change how I hear sounds (eventually). So I'm trying to work out what would be the alternatives to headphones. If you see what I mean!!
  14. @Valentin I hope you won't mind, I have a few questions to ask you!! Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself but I'm curious!! While I'm waiting for the next stage. Which do you prefer Bluetooth or using other methods for music etc? Did you just get the processor or did it come with something else? I have been told that there is a yearly maintenance fee which may be around 78-80 euros. Was this the case with you? What I do know that there will be a MED-EL rep from Madrid for once a month he/she will be heading down to the Malaga province for the mapping (I think). Did you have something similar? I'm really sorry to ask it's just that I have been given different answers from different sources.😟
  15. Good luck and all the best with the surgery. @Kellygood
