Do you have vision or hearing impairment(s)?

Last Sunday we wrote about ADA lawsuits skyrocketing because website accessibility requirements weren’t being followed. We’re taking some of the information from this to heart and learning how we can make our own website more accessible. For starters, we’re wondering if you have any vision or hearing impairment(s)?

If you answer yes, will you please leave a comment and tell us what we can do to make your experience on our website better? We’d really appreciate it. Thank you!

I have a hearing impairment on both ears. I am hard of hearing since little girl. I tend to take Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E to restore my hearing.

Low vision, so black on white print is easier than gray on white. I read your newsletter on a kindle so print can be enlarged.

My optometrist and I agree that my eyesight is impaired so I wear hard contacts or eyeglasses to address that. My wife says that I have a hearing impairment, but no doctor yet agrees. 🙂

People who are not afflicted don’t understand Tinnitus. I often tell people my ringing is louder than the conversations in the room.

The good thing is it is often louder than the voices in my head too…

Hearing aids cannot resolve all hearing problems. I Know because I wear them and not all issues are resolved.

I agree with Jeff. After 2 years in ‘Nam and the constant E-sharp in both ears, it’s enough to drive one crazy.

I don’t consider glasses an impairment, but the tinnitus and hearing loss the Navy saddled me with definitely is!

After cataract surgery 20/20 except for readers and I can see at night now. I’d worn glasses since the second grade and I’ll be 65 soon.

Define impaired! I wear glasses but I don’t consider it being impaired because I have worn them for many years. However my hearing is bad enough that I needed to get hearing aids.

I’m one of the 1 in 12 men who are partly color-blind. It drives me crazy when charts or graphs have similar shades of reds, greens, browns, or yellows for the lines. There may be a legend for what the colors stand for, but since I can’t make out the different colors, the chart or graph is useless!

Fortunately, there are sites that explain how developers can avoid this confusion. A Google search can list these, and it’s a matter of choosing the best one to meet your circumstances.

Here’s one:

Yes, those graphs can be a real pain when you are in that 8% of the male population. Thanks for the hint.

I’ve worn glasses since elementary school so don’t think in terms of impairment. My hearing seems more selective then it use to.

I have hearing loss but can’t afford to get hearing aids

I’ve gone through several HD’s by falling out of my ear misplacing or losing them. I now order online from either Amazon, eBay or wherever I can afford. Any suggestions will be gladly app.

Doesn’t Medicare pay for them?

I guess I am blessed! At 85-1/2 and no hearing aids or glasses – yet! Just a long recovery time when going from bright lite to a dark area! (Think “headlites”!) Once dark adjusted, I can see nearly as well as a cat! Always been lite sensitive tho.

I just turned 65. At my last hearing exam I was told that my hearing is excellent. As for vision, I need glasses for reading but distance vision is still pretty good.

We both wear glasses. Wife wears hearing aids which come in handy when she does not want to hear me.

While it’s not listed as a requirement on my driver’s license, I do wear trifocal glasses. I can see well enough to navigate, but need them for smaller details at all distances.
I also have a degree of tinnitus, but can hear “through” it. So far …
