Many of us have found ourselves in the situation where we are struggling to hear the person across the table. The music is playing from the speakers overhead, noise is coming from the kitchen and conversations are happening all around you. All this background noise can make communication more difficult.
“For many people who are hard of hearing, it’s a common and challenging situation. Alison Butler of the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association — Newfoundland and Labrador (CHHA-NL) said clients bring it up all the time: the loud music, the clanging and banging, and the people yelling over it all.
“As soon as you add in all that extra sound, it makes it so much more difficult to pick out the things that you want to hear, and that’s the same for all of us. It’s the same for me. You know, I can’t hear what’s going on in a noisy restaurant either,” said Butler, who doesn’t have hearing loss.”
