    New Med-El app

    I tried the new app from playstore. After logging in I answerd a couple of questions and was then allowed to update to pro version. I then had to add myself as a client and fill in a profile. Then I had to answer all the questions again. The app then sent me suggestions for rehab. All very detailed. I can read most of it on their rehab site. Very disappointing.
  2. I hope it will be of help to many. this is the first feedback I have had. hoping for some forum members this year. For android users I have added a new module for getanearful with around 400 words. I'm not trying to compete with Angel or Hearoes. It's designed for off line and for when you have a few minutes to practice. Still on sourceforge but will be on playstore soon. https://sourceforge.net/projects/getanearful If you go to the files directory there is medelmagic.apk which just has ling6 and Med-El matrices. Working with 2 audiologists in south Africa and hope
  3. excellent article. Will definitely add more info about Med-El on my website. Med-El definitely has the most progressive forum and keeps adding new rehab resources.
  4. a great list Mary Beth. I have created a habilitation and rehabilitation website which I am hoping will provide a permanent easily accessible place to find these resources and also comment on them using the forum. pdkknight.editorx.io/getanearful Please check it out. Peter
  5. I cannot tell you which way to go. The few posts I have seen about kanso2 have been full of praise ( chosen instead of cochlear n7) However Trying to compare is impossible. I can only say whatever you choose is going to work , it's best to go for the best support you find. (I read a lot of Posts on the forums , there are many success stories.) Rehab is the same for any option. This is My personal opinion.
  6. Hi Tim I can only add that whichever solution You choose will be the right one. A CI implant will almost definitely improve your ability to hear. Just find support that You like and trust and go for it. Mary Beth has furnished technical details for Med-El but I'm sure any one of the Big 3 can provide a satisfactory solution. You have certainly joined the best Forum. Good Luck Peter
  7. I had mine 2 months before my 80th birthday and by the time I get the next one I'll be 81. It's brilliant. Peter
  8. The CI in the my right ear is doing all the work and it's really good. If all the tests say OK, go for it. Peter
  9. This topic is getting interesting. I actually thought it happened because I had not been listening to anything while messing on the PC for a couple of hours. After watching TV in the evening voices sounded higher pitched and less robotic. This morning I have a frog in my throat so it's difficult to tell what's happening. My left ear is now so poor that I cannot make a comparison. One good thing is it's not affecting my ability to hear. I'm understanding the comentory on TV without watching it. So now if You See Me walking round the house talking and singing to my self, I'm no
  10. Tonight my voice and my wife's sound robotic. As they say in south Africa 'yeah well no fine ' Peter
  11. Hi Jewel No problems with my own voice yesterday. My voice doesn't change on different programs either. Peter
  12. I was researching today and came accross https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6380526/ So I guess it's going to happen more. Peter
  13. Hi jewel I also experience voice and TV voices sounding different at different times. I don't really register my own voice. Voices tend to sound more gravelly in the evenings. External sounds remain clear. I'll pay attention today and check. Peter
  14. Hi Lori https://www.familyfriendpoems.com/poems/famous/inspirational/ Maybe listening to something you enjoy while reading it, over and over will help. Would be great to have a partner to read for you. Might be fun to connect with some one in the forum using zoom or meet. Whatever you do, best wishes. Peter
