Hello everyone -
I wear dual Phonak Marvels and while watching television the other day, this idea popped into my head.
Is there an Android app, that when placing an android smartphone near the TV speaker, will transmit sound to my hearing aids? Building on this, could the smartphone be used in this manner to pickup voices at a conference table, somewhat like Phonak’s Roger microphone
I do have the Phonak TV link on one set, but I own multiple TV’s in the house and moving the TV link from set to set isn’t a solution, nor is buying multiple TV links, which must be programmed by an audiologist and added to the Phonak phone app.
I did try an app called Tunity. This app scans your TV screen, finds the broadcast channel and streams the audio through your phone. It worked great, the audio was clear however there were two huge minuses. First, the app requires you to watch a video which seemed like every 15 minutes, interrupting your show/movie. Second the app did not work so well when scanning a local television station vs one of the larger networks.
So again in summary, looking for an app that will turn my android smart phone into a remote microphone and transmit audio to my aids.
