" the hearing loss association of america " has some info on telephones
available : http://www.hearingloss.org/content/telephones
i suggest you also check to see if they have an office / store near by .
my hearing loss is moderate at this time so i have an inexpensive " vtech "
phone with adjustable volume ( $ 50 ) that serves me quite well .
i just got my first hearing aid about a month ago and it has all kinds of fancy
settings on its volume controller ( phone , music , blu-ray ) - i think i'll need
an engineering degree to get the hang of it ( i just leave it on its standard
setting ) .
if you think i can be of help , just let me know .
btw even with the hearing aid i still find it difficult to find the correct setting
if i'm speaking with more than two people ( of course , it's easy if you want
to " tune out " ; if there are too many people blabbering around .
a click of the button and you'll enjoy " serenety " .
