幸运的是,不一定要那样。有了一点体贴和关心-以及以下针对听力受损者和与之交谈者的有用技巧-可以挽救那些受损的通信线路。

对于听力受损的人:

<ul>
    <li>Pay careful attention to the speaker’s face. Visual cues are a major component of hearing comprehension.</li>
    <li>Attempt to reduce background noise. The fewer distractions your brain has to sort through, the better you’ll understand the conversation.</li>
    <li>Make sure you’re facing the speaker directly. Your ears are especially good at picking up sounds directly in front of your face.</li>
    <li>If you use hearing devices, wear them consistently. If you worry that wearing a hearing device might make you look old, just imagine how old you’ll seem constantly asking people to repeat themselves.</li>
    <li>Paraphrase and repeat information back to the speaker to cement it in your mind.</li>
    <li>Be patient. Frustration is natural, but with effort and focus, your hearing loss does not have to doom your social life.</li>
</ul>

对于朋友,家人和亲人:

<ul>
    <li>Face the person you’re speaking to.</li>
    <li>Speak slowly and clearly, but do not exaggerate your speech and do not shout.</li>
    <li>Try not to block your mouth with objects or your hands, as visual cues are crucial to comprehension.</li>
    <li>Reduce background noise as much as possible.</li>
    <li>Make sure you have the other person’s attention before you start speaking. Tap their shoulder or call their name — something to make them face you before you begin.</li>
    <li>Be prepared to repeat information as necessary. </li>
    <li>Be patient. Frustration is natural, but your compassionate efforts to communicate make a world of difference.</li>
</ul>
