Sound Decision Site and Sounds

Jeff did a great job sharing his experience with a cochlear implant in A Sound Decision. This link takes you to the page that demonstrates what saying a sentence sounds like through regular hearing, a hearing aid, hook up day, a few days later, and two weeks later. To me, it all sounds the same except for the beeps and blips… it sounds like noise not like a person talking.

The site also talks about how sound works with a cochlear implant. Jeff describes his hearing experience and what he experiences is not necessarily what I will experience. It may take me more time or less time… it may not sound as clear. We do not have the same history with regard to our hearing loss.

This PowerPoint file is a simulation of what a cochlear implant sounds like. Thanks to Michael Chorost for the pointer.

    FYI: the site that you linked to for “A Sound Decision” is infected with a trojan virus: Trojan-Clicker.HTML.IFrame.fh
    I’ll attempt to contact the website host
