AppleVis but for hearing impaired?

Other Apple Chat

Hi there! My name is Volkan. I am from The Netherlands. I have registered for this forum in order to find out if there's is a forum like AppleVis but for the hearing impaired.

Hoping someone can help me with this one!

Hello Volkan, some of us on AppleVis have both sight and hearing loss. I've tried a few posts in this area on AppleVis but with predictably poor response. I use Resound Linx "made for iPhone" hearing aids and got them because they can be set up to hear VoiceOver's speech directly to the hearing aids without broadcasting everything I'm doing to the world at large. To answer your question, I've not found a hearing loss and Apple forum.

Hi Brian, thank you so much for the quick response. I am an employee of a big electronics retailer and do not have any impairments myself. I have signed up for this forum to get more information about hardware and software that supports Apple users with visual and auditive impairments. So that I may relay the information to my customers.

I will browse around on this forum to get more acquainted with all the available aids!

Thank you!
