Calling all Scottish, Welsh, Irish, Geordie and Scouse accented speakers. Deaf, HOH or of normal hearing. Please take part in the Initial Survey. RLRA needs you.

I did the survey and there is one question that will prove difficult for everyone to answer: “Please select the percentage of hearing loss that you have”. Hearing loss isn’t measured in terms of percentages, it’s measured in decibels, and there is no conversion scale to enable me to ‘convert’ my hearing loss. Oops.

RLRA has a blog – you need to create an account to be able to leave a comment.
