argh!

telephones are stupid.

TTY phones are worse.

bitchy IT people who don't understand that there *is* no secure realtime way to get in touch with you are even worse.

I think I need to go reread The Design of Everyday Things and feel superior.

that should be adapt phones, not adopt phones, in my other comment...

I have some interest in hearing loss for a few reasons. One is that I love being able to hear. I love music, and i love the sounds of things, like trains or snow or thunderstorms. I would not like to become deaf.

Another is that my (aforementioned) uncle struggles with hearing loss, and is passionate about making progress in treatment. After years of speaking with him, some of it is rubbing off.

Oh, and that since he, and my grandmother, and now my mother to some extent, have hearing loss, its more likely that i will have some as well.

Finally, it is an interesting engineering problem for me. Signal processing (for image or speech recognition) is just sorta of cool. I enjoy the way that good recognition algorithms start from a really good understanding of the underlying mechanisms in sight or hearing. Also, enhancement of the underlying signal is as close as my work ever comes to art.
