I need to stop kidding myself. My hearing has declined enough that I have trouble picking up things like the notifications and voices over a smart phone. I’ve noticed this is an issue with both Android and iPhone. I know from experience I have less trouble with flip phones because they are a good bit louder and more distinct on sound. So I’m planning to “upgrade” to a newer flip phone. I’ll probably try to find a tablet to tether when I really need that much screen space for anything. That can come later; I’ll be glad to accept a good used one if anyone wants to donate.
I’ll be trying to buy this stuff used or refurbished, but if you want to contribute to my PayPal, this would be a good time.
Update: I have received sufficient donations to cover the devices. Thank you, folks.
