— a sad hearing testing story

Just hard to believe but it is happening to one
audiological center at a hospital in southern Odisha,
India. The testing machine is broken. It has been
broken for over a month. And for some reason, it is
not being repaired. And the hospital has not ordered
a new testing machine. In the meantime, the line of
patients needing to get hearing tests gets longer
and longer.

— a question by a deaf Japanese person

A group of deaf Japanese people attended the recent
Hearing Loss Association of America convention.
One of them was puzzled about the CI. He asked if
the Americans have CI insurance then why some
of them need to raise funds in the first place?
He said his nation the national health care
system completely funds these implants.
