To hear is to participate

Hearing and understanding are the lifeblood of the world around you. They allow you to communicate and interact with others. It is also a source of fun and information. Sense of hearing is often taken for granted, but its gradual impairment can impact your ability to participate actively in life.

A voice can be very moving and convey ideas, emotions and feelings. Each word spoken, composed of sounds and timbres, sources of understanding, allows us to establish and maintain human relationships.

  • I often confuse similar words.

When voices become less clear

Hearing loss can gradually set in, without you even noticing it at first. Some sounds remain audible, while others weaken and become difficult to hear. Communication then becomes more and more difficult and requires greater effort.

It is usually the higher pitched sounds that are the most difficult to hear and understand. High-pitched consonants, such as S, F, CH, and T play a crucial role in our ability to clearly understand speech. This is why people with hearing loss often say, "I hear but I don't understand."
