My audiologist has my streaming program, my t-coil program, and maybe some of the auto ones set up to turn down the input from the ambient microphones. I think I understand why, but I’m thinking of asking her change the t-coil one to be exactly the same as normal autosense, except with the t-coil switched on.
good idea or no?
My primary purpose for the t-coil is for using an FM receiver and neck loop at church…big echo space…so I can better understand the speech. It does help in some ways with other things like the music too, but in some ways I’d like to hear the ambient sounds more normally…especially the music since it’s more full and rich that way…and to hear my kids if they whisper something to me, etc… I have so far not found any other place I could use the t-coil so I’m not sure how this may be elsewhere.
Ultimately I wish t-coil and streaming could both be autosense with all its features except just adding in the t-coil equally. Is that even possible? Bad idea?
I wonder if this is a bad idea… maybe the echo and ambient noises will compete too much with the piped in sound?
I’d in a way like the other streaming program(s) to be the same way…sometimes anyway. For example it’s probably good when I’m on the phone streaming to turn down the ambient just a bit for better understanding… but I find it odd when the mics turn down as the phone’s GPS tells me to make a turn… or it chimes to let me know I received a message, etc… It can even be bad occasionally if a passenger is talking to me and they have no idea that the phone is yacking away in my ears too. I have to ask them to repeat themselves because they are turned down for that time.
I’m going to the audiologist Thursday and I’m hoping for just a bit of advice for what I might ask her for…
