The Chapter’s three summer “Rap Sessions” were well received and attended by 20 to 30 members at each session. There were lots of questions and feedback on decision to get a cochlear implant – or not, telephone systems, InnoCaption, and apps that provide noise level information for restaurants in the area and anywhere. Phone apps that show real-time caption speech such as AVA were demonstrated and issues with medical providers were a topic as well.

Anne Taylor, Ed Ogiba, Chris Goodier and Kathy Combs did an outstanding job keeping the discussions going, on point and moving the topics around.
