I was out to dinner the other night in Uptown Charlotte and saw the typical 21st century young, urban couple. They were dressed stylishly, moved with grace, were good-looking, and barely talked or looked at each other the entire time I saw them at the restaurant. Were they:

A. In a fight?
B. Shy mutes?
C. Engrossed with their mobile phones?

Of course, and sadly, the most probable answer in today’s world is C. I have a difficult time with this! I want to say, “Buddy, wake up! You’re with a good-looking woman; I can’t believe I have to tell you to look up and talk to her, instead of texting your friend, Chuck! What’s wrong with you?”

An App For the Hearing Impaired

hearing impairedHearing Impaired Phones Reduce Frustration.

Most likely, the hearing impaired phone you’re researching is for a friend or loved one. Although your parent, grandparent or good friend may not believe that they have a hearing impairment (over 28 million people in the U.S. have hearing loss), your telephone conversations may be increasingly frustrating for both parties. Many amplified phones are purchased by someone other than the individual who really needs the device. The level of amplification needed often depends on the level of hearing loss (see below). To make matters worse, many individuals with a hearing loss typically either 1) think that there are no problems with their hearing, or 2) believe that there are no decent amplified telephones on the market that will allow them to have clear communications with friends and family.

Closed Captioning

In 1993, the United States passed a law that mandated all televisions at least 13 inches in size have the capability to display captioning for all the programs. The only problem is that a lot of people are not aware that their television comes with this ability. If you are unsure how to use this feature, you may want to check with a friend or technician who can help you with enabling this feature and going through the instruction manual.

Movie theaters offering closed captioning is a completely different ballgame. There are some theaters that offer subtitles during special showings for individuals with a hearing impairment. Some others offer rear window captioning, which allows the captions to be displayed on a panel back at the viewer’s seat. However, the systems are not spread throughout the country as of yet, so… Continue reading

Smart Phone Vs. Basic Cell – Is It Worth It?

While smart phones like iPhone and Blackberry get the popular headlines, most Americans still use a basic cell phone – but that is changing.

Together with growing apps markets that add fun and useful features to these smart devices, basic cell phones are fast becoming a memory.

Smart phones are basically an integration of a mobile phone and a handheld computer. When some of the first PDA (personal digital assistant) devices came… Continue reading
