Re: Hearing Aids

Gerald Levy
 

I just purchased 60 ICellTech size 13 hearing aid batteries on Amazon.com for $13.32 with free shipping. They last just as long as name brand batteries , about 3 weeks, in my Siemens Touching BTE digital aids, which I purchased ready to wear on EBay.com for under $200 a pair. They put my custom $3000 pair of Phonak digital aids to shame, and are more reliable and robust, to boot.

I can get about 40 size 13 batteries at Wal-Mart for around $12. But since I
have the type aids which have a transmitter on one side and the receiver on
the other, my batteries only last about 4 days.

You must not use #13 batteries?

When you said how much you paid, I checked my file for a number, which is:

877-572-9248

That number is for Hear Better. I got 96 there, it seems like for maybe $24,
probably plus shipping.

Bye for now,

I don’t often recommend products unless I am really pleased with them. I
just want to put a little plug in for the Phonak Cros hearing aids. I have
little or no hearing in my right ear because of nerve damage. I wore in-ear
aids for about 7 years and hated them but wore them anyway. Then about a
year and a half ago, I was introduced with the Phonak behind the ear aids.
The one for the right ear is a transmitter and the one on the left is the
receiver. I just cannot say enough good about these aids and how much better
they work than the old ones. I no longer have the feeling that I am going to
scream when in a crowded noisy place. I would never suggest that they
replace normal hearing but they sure come closer than what I experienced
before. I just had them cleaned and adjusted and it is so slick. I put them
on, the tech puts a device around my neck and then he does all the adjusting
on his computer. Fortunately, my hearing in the left ear is still pretty
good and I pray it continues. On top of that, I have been in twice for
adjusting and they do not charge me at all. When I was in Arizona, they
charged for everything.

I would think so I don’t use it that much web base just like Gmail I don’t use it hardly web base.

I have no problem with my computer and screen reader using it .But this is me and using IE11 and W7 and jaws 17 . If she or he is using something different they might have a different experience all together.

Also what I think is very accessible and user friendly is coming from me and it is hard to say with another person and not even knowing what kind of computer they have like Windows or Mac or what browser they are using and what version or what screen reader and version they have. Also how familiar they are with their PC and the web and their screen reader.

All I can say is give it a go it is free and if she don’t like it abandon it or delete the account. Like I say it is Free.

Re: Hearing Aids

Carolyn Arnold
 

I also looked and found another number, which is for batteries Plus. The one in our area is:

919-303-1141

Probably you have one in your area.

It could be you know those places and that the batteries you have simply are expensive, but if you can save money with these numbers, then that will be good.

The set which I have was a little over $3000. and here in Reno I went to Sierra Hearing but i believe it is local only. I would look in the phone book for Hearing centers and call to ask if they carry the Phonak Cros.

I don't have the ringing issue thank goodness but was told that these aids also help reduce tinitis. Might be worth a try. You can try these out so if they don't work for you they are easy to return since they are not made to fit any person's ears.

I have heard so many different stories and I am seriously happy for those who report success with new hearing aids.



I have been told with the aid I have, nothing else I wear will improve or
not help the hearing, and this was from two specialist...

My hearing aid is a quontam something lol but don’t remember the exact name.
I have that major ringing in the right ear and like I said severe hearing
loss in the right ear. I use to wish I could see better, hahaha now I give
anything to hear much better. Not perfect hearing but at least hear someone
when talking to me in a crowded room.

I don’t often recommend products unless I am really pleased with them. I
just want to put a little plug in for the Phonak Cros hearing aids. I have
little or no hearing in my right ear because of nerve damage. I wore in-ear
aids for about 7 years and hated them but wore them anyway. Then about a
year and a half ago, I was introduced with the Phonak behind the ear aids.
The one for the right ear is a transmitter and the one on the left is the
receiver. I just cannot say enough good about these aids and how much better
they work than the old ones. I no longer have the feeling that I am going to
scream when in a crowded noisy place. I would never suggest that they
replace normal hearing but they sure come closer than what I experienced
before. I just had them cleaned and adjusted and it is so slick. I put them
on, the tech puts a device around my neck and then he does all the adjusting
on his computer. Fortunately, my hearing in the left ear is still pretty
good and I pray it continues. On top of that, I have been in twice for
adjusting and they do not charge me at all. When I was in Arizona, they
charged for everything.

Re: Alternatives to Gmail

Matt
 

I would think so I don’t use it that much web base just like Gmail I don’t use it hardly web base.

I have no problem with my computer and screen reader using it .But this is me and using IE11 and W7 and jaws 17 . If she or he is using something different they might have a different experience all together.

Also what I think is very accessible and user friendly is coming from me and it is hard to say with another person and not even knowing what kind of computer they have like Windows or Mac or what browser they are using and what version or what screen reader and version they have. Also how familiar they are with their PC and the web and their screen reader.

All I can say is give it a go it is free and if she don’t like it abandon it or delete the account. Like I say it is Free.

Does she have a smart phone >? If so what kind?

If you are having problems installing updates, that might explain why you
are also having problems upgrading to Windows 10.  Certain updates must be
installed before you can proceed with the upgrade.  However, you can now
directly install Windows 10 using your Windows 7 product key so you may be
better off simply performing a clean installation of 10.

Alternatives to Gmail

Hi list, I’m asking this question on behalf of someone else. Can anyone recommend webmail services other than Gmail? Personally, I would recommend Gmail to anyone but I’m wondering if there are other services that don’t involve account verification.

Thanks in advance.

Sylvia.

My mother's were the digital hearing aids that go in the ear, and the batteries lasted something like a week, and they cost a lot. I forget what a lot is, though. Pam.

Mine were $270 for both. That is why I bought them from myhearing.com. They have a phone number, and I called to place my order.

Bye for now,

The set which I have was a little over $3000. and here in Reno I went to Sierra Hearing but i believe it is local only. I would look in the phone book for Hearing centers and call to ask if they carry the Phonak Cros.

I don't have the ringing issue thank goodness but was told that these aids also help reduce tinitis. Might be worth a try. You can try these out so if they don't work for you they are easy to return since they are not made to fit any person's ears.

I have heard so many different stories and I am seriously happy for those who report success with new hearing aids.



I have been told with the aid I have, nothing else I wear will improve or
not help the hearing, and this was from two specialist...

My hearing aid is a quontam something lol but don’t remember the exact name.
I have that major ringing in the right ear and like I said severe hearing
loss in the right ear. I use to wish I could see better, hahaha now I give
anything to hear much better. Not perfect hearing but at least hear someone
when talking to me in a crowded room.

I don’t often recommend products unless I am really pleased with them. I
just want to put a little plug in for the Phonak Cros hearing aids. I have
little or no hearing in my right ear because of nerve damage. I wore in-ear
aids for about 7 years and hated them but wore them anyway. Then about a
year and a half ago, I was introduced with the Phonak behind the ear aids.
The one for the right ear is a transmitter and the one on the left is the
receiver. I just cannot say enough good about these aids and how much better
they work than the old ones. I no longer have the feeling that I am going to
scream when in a crowded noisy place. I would never suggest that they
replace normal hearing but they sure come closer than what I experienced
before. I just had them cleaned and adjusted and it is so slick. I put them
on, the tech puts a device around my neck and then he does all the adjusting
on his computer. Fortunately, my hearing in the left ear is still pretty
good and I pray it continues. On top of that, I have been in twice for
adjusting and they do not charge me at all. When I was in Arizona, they
charged for everything.

Re: Windows Update Problem

If you are running Windows 7 Starter Edition, you can upgrade to Windows 10 Home Edition.  Yes, Windows 7 Starter Edition is intended to run on lower powered machines, but so is Windows 10 Home Edition since there is no Starter Edition of 10.  Most netbooks running the Starter Edition of 7 should be able to run Windows 10 Home Edition with no problems.

But can you install Windows 10 if you are using Windows Starter?  I'm skeptical that Microsoft would allow you to upgrade Windows in that way.  I also don't know whether a Netbook running Windows Starter will run full Windows well.  I'm not saying it will or won't but I wonder if Windows starter is designed to require less power to allow it to run on machines like low power Netbooks.
