HearPeers Heroes Ivana Marinac Posted March 18, 2016 HearPeers Heroes Report Share Posted March 18, 2016 Hello Gang, Before posting this topic I balanced a lot where exactly put it - not quite a matter of rehab and it does not enters into a category most used outer unit named on the forum. So I decided to put it in this general column hoping that someone has a possible solution to offer. Yesterday I was contacted by a member of a CI community from a country near mine - she`s an adult CI implantee already 16 years (implanted when she was a 4 years old) used an old processor - TEMPO. This young lady hitch up my attention by the fact that she is a student of speech therapy and audiology at near University almost perfectly rehabilitated. I have been corresponding at least an hour and her syntax was perfect - she thanked that to her granny and efforts which has been invested into her future. So - where is the problem? Well, after certain time of using TEMPO with perfect results, according to her and my random observation, there came a time for switching a processor. She got RONDO but there started problems - she said that she can not achieve former level of speech recognition. Numerous maps were changed, she even tried OPUS 2S and problems persisted. Problem is that everything what has been said is incomprehensible - she has intensity but words are not recognizable. Unexpectedly, speech audiometry/speech recognition test is good. OK, next logical step is return to the TEMPO - but ... there is always but actually - now she can not achieve former results with her previous procesor, TEMPO, any more. Three years, while wandering around, has passed and now she has lost her previous level of speech recognition. I thought there will be a great loss to lose such a fine young lady. So, I thought - maybe someone has any idea where is a possible problem. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
