This morning I got a Caption Call phone installed. I don’t have a land line available so they suggested Magic Jack and it works! There’s a second or so delay due to the Magic Jack but I see captions as people talk. I’m going to be calling lots of people tomorrow for practice.
Just now I was in the kitchen cleaning and getting ready for dinner. I have my iPod plugged into one ear because I’m expecting my kids to show up soon. I was adding dishes to the dish washer and I hear a buzz. I wondered if I was hearing things. I knew it wasn’t my cell phone ringing. I heard it again and thought, “What the hell is that?” It rang one more time and I realized it was my new phone. Oh! My! God! I can hear my new phone ring from the kitchen.
I skipped past the living room into my little room, my office, and picked up the phone extremely excited. It’s been years since I’ve heard a phone ring from another room! Granted, it’s set up at medium volume (which made the hearing lady who installed the phone cringe) and set at a low frequency. It’s got one more setting if I need it some day so I do this for a few years hopefully. It will wake the dead I’m sure. My boyfriend may hate it but he’ll have to get used to it. I’m so happy!
