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<x>pressions that subtitles or the actors are not able to communicate/show<br />
2) the person is just trying to understand<br />
3) depends on ones capabilities and mood/intentions, what they want, they may want to<br />
a) pass time<br />
b) enjoying the noise<br />
c) switching their mind between two(time sharing)<br />
d) may have capability to understand both, at least partially<br />
4) it is his/her duty, he/she may have not tried it on him/her self.<br />
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.<br />
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?
