Welcome to Know Your Hearing Loss!
Those who suffer from a hearing loss (like myself) understand that a hearing aid does not instantly cure all of our difficulties.
The purpose of this website is to enable you to share your hearing difficulties with your family, friends and colleagues, so that they better understand your individual situation with respect to hearing loss. It also demonstrates other types of hearing loss, so that you can compare your difficulties with others who have impaired hearing.
This Hearing Loss Simulator and the Hearing Hub have been designed to help turn this complex subject into a language that can ultimately, help improve communication and allow the hearing-impaired person to be treated as an equal.
Keep an eye out for the icon as this will highlight key information and will help you in using the website.
