Not for aural rehab, but for help understanding speech on your trip.  This will turn speech to text.  It’s pretty good.  Test it out at home first.  It is free.

@JohnL you could put an audiobook or two on your phone to listen to while you're there.

Maybe I misunderstood your post.  I thought you were anxious about being able to understand people speaking to you on your trip since it is so early in your CI journey.  That’s why I posted a speech to text app that may help.  Sorry if I misunderstood.  Have a great vacation.

you didn't misunderstand. I am concerned about my lack of progress in understanding speech (I don't even want to talk about how horrible music sounds). And it's both English and French because most of our tours and onboard staff speak English. We are in Paris for three days before boarding the ship and understanding French would be a challenge even if I could hear well :).  So your suggestion is helpful. Thanks.

That app will listen to French speech and convert to English text.  It may be helpful.

 

Enjoy your trip. Which river cruise line did you choose?  That’s on our to do list too.

 

After you return home if you would like help with aural rehab, let me know.  

 

It will get better.  Hang in there.

That is a good message to all CI users. It gets better over time. 

Patience, practice and perseverance 

the more you work at it helps too.

we are sailing on the Seine with Amawaterways. The highlight is a day at Normandy beach. 

I have been doing aural rehab by reading an audio book and with Clix and Angel sounds every day. And I will continue to do so on our trip.
