  1. I was a member of SWC for several years, beginning when you only had one list of about 30 members. In 1997 I received a CI, and eventually rejoined the hearing world, to some degree at least, and left the list. I found it to be a wonderful experience for me while I was a member, and when my daugeter told me of an HOH friend who had a problem, I decided this was probably the best place to get an answer for her. She is older (like me!) and uses a cellphone; doesn’t have a land line. She often misses phone calls because she doesn’t always hear it ring, and may not notice the vibration if it’s not in her pocket. Have any of you experienced this problem and found a solution to it? If so, please send me your suggestions; I appreciate it! And say “Hi” to Bob Deafie for me… 🙂

  2. I just stumbled upon Trish’s message and I’m hoping she is still checking the blog because I want to tell her about Mobile Captions Service. This is a new cell phone solution that delivers captions (text) directly to a cell phone so that people who have trouble hearing can “speak, read and listen” their conversations. I am a founder of the business and I am hard of hearing myself. You can check us out at http://www.mobilecaptions.com

    With Mobile Captions Service, if you miss an incoming call, when you retrieve the message via voice mail, it is captioned too.
