Our Next Meeting is December 16 - Using Zoom

10:00 am to Noon (MST)

Latest Cell Phone Apps for People With Hearing Loss

You asked, and we will do our best to deliver some tips and tricks and some basics about cell phone apps. Everything from “What’s an app?” to “Where do I find them?” to learning about some of the apps that can make a world of difference for peoplewith hearing loss. Everything from how to look for a quieter restaurant, to multiple speech to text apps, and "What’s a speech to text app?"

Join Mary Clark, a long-time member of the ABQ chapter, and Ann Thomas who will be joining us via Zoom to co-host a presentation that will focus on the basics and learning about new apps. Ann Thomas shared a presentation about cell phone apps with our chapter about 5 or 6 years ago, and it was well done and well received. She is president of the Diablo Valley (CA) chapter of HLAA, and serves on the Get in the Hearing Loop Committee at the national level for HLAA.

This is a program you won’t want to miss!
