A relative of mine has quite substantial hearing loss. It has deteriorated a lot in the last few years but has stabilised. He works in sales so does a lot of travelling, going to meetings etc. He has a decent hearing aid which is nice and discreet but I was wondering if there were any decent tech items out there that could be of use to him.
Case in point - he has an old Nokia phone, he struggles to hear it ringing because of the type of pitch it is.
I wondered if there was a really heavy duty bluetooth device out there which would support a really good talk function when he's in his car. For that matter, a BT device which had for example a large display so he could even be visibly alerted to an incoming call.
Also, does anybody know of any gadgets that could perhaps convert speech to text but on a swift enough basis to be useful?
All ideas welcome, I just want to be able to do something to help him.
