I have had a hard time for years now watching TV while my ears are hurting.

Just recently I started plugging in my Bose noise reduction headset into the sound system. It is great, it keeps my ear drums from feeling like the skins on a drum.  I hope this might help someone.

Use the close captioning, all the TV's have it, except the tiny ones!

They legally must have closed captioning, so use it!

I would like to know, too.  Wonder if it works on DVD sourounding system, too?  Also has anyone noticed lately that commercials are much louder than TV programs?  Tire of turning up and down everytime commercials come on.  

Take care!  Mitsuyo

Hi Norm,

 

Closed captions are called subtitles in Europe.

Here it's explained: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Closed_captioning.

 

Please correct me when I'm wrong.

 

Regards,

Henk

Close Captioning is what the deaf people read on their TV's because they can't hear sound...........so your able to read the script of what is being said by whom, and that's how I and many watch TV.

All Deaf people aren't Deaf, just as all blind people aren't blind.

Many deaf people can also hear well on the telephone and they are the best drivers because their more aware of what's going on, and don't have loud music or cell phones, etc.....

It is a feature all TV's legally must be required to have these days, except the very small TV's, or older TV's.
