Television dialogue can be a struggle to pick up. This is further complicated by background noise from conversations or busy settings like airports and restaurants. The Tunity app enables you to receive audio from any live TV program. You take a photo of what you’re watching through the app’s camera feature and the audio syncs automatically. Then, all you have to do is put on your headphones or pop in your earbuds and listen away! You can also stream the audio to your hearing aids if your model is smartphone compatible. Tunity is a free app.
Talking on the phone can be difficult for people with hearing loss (even with hearing aids). Clear Captions makes conversing on the phone enjoyable again by providing captions you can read while you’re also listening. The captions can be displayed on a tablet, desktop computer or smartphone. This app is free to individuals with medically recognized hearing loss.
Failing to recognize background noises can be inconvenient or even put your safety at risk. That’s where the Sound Alert app comes in. You’ll hear your microwave, smoke alarms, doorbell, a ringing phone and honking cars with this app. You can program what sounds you want Sound Alert to notify you about. Once you do that, your phone will vibrate or flash to alert you to those sounds. The app costs between 40 and 50 US dollars. Because Sound Alert is based in the United Kingdom, the price could fluctuate a bit depending on the exchange rate.
