Is InnoCaption For Me?
Are you finding it more difficult to have a conversation on your cellphone because of hearing loss?
You are not alone. About 20% of adults in the U.S. have some degree of hearing loss – that’s 48 million people! Most common causes of hearing loss are noise and aging. As you age, changes in the inner ear cause a slow but steady hearing loss. The loss may be mild or severe, but it is always permanent. However, hearing loss is affecting many more before the age of 65.
Among post-9/11 veterans, 1.5 million have come home with hearing loss and tinnitus, or ringing in the ears. The most-widespread injury for veterans has been hearing loss and other auditory complications, according to interviews and benefits data.
In June 2013, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that, among 5.2 million pre-adolescents and teens, 12.5 percent (and rising) have sustained permanent noise-induced hearing damage. Researchers hypothesize that this can be attributed to the access to portable media players and earbuds.
With hearing loss, it’s easy to understand the difficulty in using something as simple as a cellphone. Many people who are losing their hearing has had it happen so gradual that it is difficult to pinpoint the change in their hearing until they find themselves actually no longer using the phone because it becomes too hard or embarrassing to ask people to repeat themselves. Hearing loss can isolate people.
However, InnoCaption’s captioning app can reconnect those with hearing loss to the people in their world!
