  1. Thanks Mary Beth, I'm due for a mapping session in March. This session has been a loud one I have volume down to 1. As for a piece of music, I'll think about it. My taste limits around the 1990. My latest would be Susan Boyle and Katie melua . My favourites Ella and Barbara Streisand are disaster. Maybe that video of Peter and the wolf?? Peter
  2. You have to admit it would be nice to say this one is best. For me I would like to know how things sound to other people. Lately, 9 months on, in the evenings I find voices sounding gravelly (croaky?) . I think it we agreed on a particular piece of music, then we could try and describe what we hear. It's not going to prove which is best. But could be interesting. Whatever my ci sounds like, it sure beats my old hearing aid. Peter
  3. You guys and dolls have so many devices, even if the phonak kit worked for cochlear, it is so expensive. The other day I was shown a telecoil set, just 2 loops to stick behind your ears. Worked really well when plugged into my cell phone. Only 300 rand. We have had a presentation of all the latest kit recently, it was done by the group that market the cochlear brand. I wasn't able to go. Peter
  4. OK, so can you add a little info to backup that statement. Peter

    Text to Speech on Android

    I have just finished another app which will be the first part of many words and sentences. Along with the idea from bendmyear I'm hoping we can produce some useful training on the android scene. It includes my version of the ling 6 test. https://sourceforge.net/projects/getanearful Get that android pad working Mary Beth. Peter

  7. Just cruising and found the link to the trombone arrangement of bohemian rhapsody. The low notes work well for me some squelch in the higher notes but still enjoyable. https://www.wqxr.org/story/all-trombone-cover-bohemian-rhapsody-balm-your-weary-soul/https://www.wqxr.org/story/all-trombone-cover-bohemian-rhapsody-balm-your-weary-soul/
  8. Really good quotes from rickh and Mary Beth. As I said I'll keep trying. Peter
  9. I would love to be able to know what music sounds like to you. My music experience could never justify such great headphones. While I do get enjoyment from quite a lot , I have to say the singing voice and orchestral music are unacceptable, mushy and squelchy. What small Improvement there is does not provide an acceptable sound. My guitar still sounds terrible. I'll keep trying.. Peter
  10. Made a mistake. Should have been https://m.apkpure.com/speechtexter-speech-to-text/com.speechtexter.speechtexter @voice is text to speech. Peter
  11. It's an android app on google play. You can try it on your new tablet. @voice aloud reader apk https://m.apkpure.com/voice-aloud-reader-tts-reader/com.hyperionics.avar Peter
  12. hi Mary Beth Working hard on on a new app trying to emulate the matrix hearing lists. Will eventually get data provided by audiologists and probably some other ideas. Peter
  13. I'd like to add to that. A special wish for Mary Beth, you have helped make my year. Peter
