3. Very kind of you to go to such trouble for me. Thanks for the links. Generally I don't mind

being so hearing impaired, but it does make conversations hard when people mumble, hide their mouths (I read lips), or turn to the side or try to talk from a distance.

At least with movies & TV I can get captioning.

5. My wife and I use captioning on movies ...

It seems most movies are more interested in big noise (immersive sound) than clear speech. Compare old tv shows and movies to modern ones and it's easy to hear the difference in dialog.

I've lost some frequencies from not using hearing protection with power tools. There was a news clip of a parrot mimicking a smoke alarm and I heard neither. I can hear a mouse gnawing inside a wall, but someone whistling at a certain pitch on tv is completely silent.

Text to speech is relatively simple; speech to text appears to be difficult.

6. And don't get me started about background music? My deafness is progressive, so

there was a time when I could follow movies as long as I wore my hearing aids, but so much dialogue is swallowed by background music. Even my hearing friends complain about it.
