Yes. I personally have an ear condition called Meniere's Disease. When tested by a doctor he found out that I can hear very high, and extremely low frequencies quite well. However, I have pretty extreme nerve damage, and therefore hearing loss, in the "mid range" of sounds, exactly where the human voice "is". Therefore even though I hear sound when people talk, I often have a terrible time understanding the words.
That is genuinely Interesting.
Describes my own situation exactly! I rely on the "closed captioning" feature to watch TV. My severe hearing loss is frustrating to others as well as myself, so I've tended to "isolate" due to that & also depression.
1) the tone of voice also explains about feelings/ex
2) the person is just trying to understand
3) depends on ones capabilities and mood/intentions, what they want, they may want to
a) pass time
b) enjoying the noise
c) switching their mind between two(time sharing)
d) may have capability to understand both, at least partially
4) it is his/her duty, he/she may have not tried it on him/her self.
5) from me > person talking on cellphone, not able to hear properly(low volume) the voice of other-starts speaking loudly as if the person on other side id also hearing low voice.
answer>we are more in habit of communicating in real(face to face or with some distance), you can say our brains are wired for such(real communication) immediate/natural response only, it will take some more years to adapt to new technology.
they are just replying how their brain was wired(for real communications) when they were healthy
Very. I have the same problem. Background noise affects the degree of my deafness very much.
Are there subtitles to explain this question?
