The TV volume is at a normal sound and the person needs to have the subtitles on because they don't understand what it's saying but hears it. The radio is on low, a notch from off and the person doesn't understand what its saying but hears it. The TV and the radio is on two different levels of volume on on medium and the other on low, the person hears both and don't understand both without the subtitles or someone telling them what it is about. Update: Many years ago, I had gone to an ear specialist and this doctor had to check my ears with this noisy instrument. I jumped at the sound of it cause for me it was very loud and he said; why have you jumped, this instrument isn't that loud/noisy? :)

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.

Sorry about your condition. I have had many ear problems, seen my ear specialist a few times and never was I told about meniere.
