I have been hunting around for a copy of FM Successware to no avail. I am considering a Phonak FM system and will probably be choosing the new Inspiro even though it’s considered a children’s product. The problem I have is that I do need to be able to get into the menus and things to set default channels, receiver gain, my own name, etc. because there is nobody to do this for me. Astonishingly, I do not have a teacher for the deaf!
I understand they don’t want to send this out to “non-professionals” in case they use it to deafen small children with inappropriate settings, however I am currently looking at paying someone £75 to input my name on a screen (to identify it from other transmitters of the same type at events) and to select the required volume and channel. I really don’t think that’s a great use of limited funds when the software itself is free, but they won’t give it to me because I am not a “professional”. Not sure how professional I need to be in order to enter my name on a screen, but there you go.
How can I get a copy of this? Does anyone have a pile of them? Any professionals who wouldn’t mind sending for one for me? The system is next to unusable if I cannot program the gain and balance the receiver.
