New technology may facilitate phone conversations for those suffering from hearing loss. A recent article published by CNET, discusses how an IBM research scientist, Dimitri Kanevsky, developed a technology that can help hearing loss sufferers better communicate.

Mr. Kavevsky, who has been deaf since he was 3 years old, utilizes technology that instantly transcribes a phone conversation and posts the text on a commonly viewable Web site. As the article states, “Kanevsky and 13 others were honored at the White House in a ceremony to celebrate those “leading the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math for people with disabilities.”

Technological advances occur every single day, whether it is to help facilitate phone communications, or improve a hearing aid. Hearing loss sufferers are day after day able to receive a unit, which will help in the improvement of their quality of life.
