During our September
meeting, Advanced Bionic representative, Karalee Kowar, discussed ‘”Change
Your Life! Improved Hearing with a Cochlear Implant”. Karalee has provided
cochlear implant education and auditory-based therapy to children and adults
with hearing loss for many years, and covered the advances in cochlear implant
hearing devices. There was an active interest in CI’s as evidenced by the
questions of interested attendees.
Our October meeting was an introduction to InnoCaption+ by two of their representatives, Matt Goncalves and Cristina Duarte. The new “+” is now more user-friendly, allowing you to use your cell number versus an assigned number. They use live CART stenographers to cover the other side of your conversation on iPhone or Android mobile phones. Most everyone with a cell phone downloaded the app and registered. Many stayed after to work with Matt and Cristina to get it working correctly.
