I gave an interview about hearing aid DYI and hacking in the BCC. See the full article here: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-18690973
I recently gave an interview to kon-sens.net, a blog about the hearing aid industry (in German). It is mostly about my experiences with hearing aids and my wishes to the hearing aid industry. Enjoy the read!
Good news! With the help of some great people, I was able to provide subtitles for the recording of my talk at the 28c3 conference. You can watch the video on youtube and switch on the subtitles as explained in the following screenshot.
Just click on the “CC” button at the left bottom of the video.
If you have any problems viewing the video, please let me know. Also, I highly appreciate it if you have feedback for me. Just send me an email or drop a comment here. Thanks a lot!
Lovely people help me with my project. This time, I got a french translation of my slides. They were translated by Marie-Pierre (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I am very thankful for that! She says it is so far just a draft, so if you find any errors, please let her know so she can correct it.
Update: Marie-Pierre asked me to mention that she had great help from people from the project http://libre-et-accessible.org/ with her translation.
The final video of my talk at the 28c3 is available now. I am working on the subtitles. Stay tuned!
Please give feedback on the talks page!
As promised, I provide the slides of my talk “Bionic Ears” at the 28c3 hacker conference in Berlin.
I also offer a version with detailed speaker notes, because especially my hearing-impaired audience might need it to be able to follow. I had to downsample the images in this version to avoid the files getting too big. Please have a look at the “slides only” version for details in the images.
I played different audio samples during the talk, you can download them here:
Update: If you want everything in one packet, you can get it here:
At my talk at 28c3, I played a couple of sound files to show my audience how I hear.
The original file is a song “Sad Robot” by “Pornophonique“.
This version has the high frequencies removed, which is typical for a hearing loss.
Additionally, I have a nasty tinnitus sound in the frequency range which is affected by my hearing loss. The following file has this sampled in. Since the tinnitus sound is similar to a feedback loop’s sound, you are advised not to play it too loud, because it could destroy audio equipment.
The tinnitus sound is taken from a website which provides a collection of typical tinnitus noises: http://www.ata.org/sounds-of-tinnitus
Today, at 17:15, my talk about hearing aid technology at the 28c3 will start. Hope to see you there 🙂
You can watch the internet streams from Saal2: http://28c3.fem-net.de/.
I just received the confirmation email, that my talk “Bionic Ears” is accepted for the 28c3. Yay! Hope to see you there 🙂 Ticket sale starts on Sunday (see here).
