Marion county, Dunnellon Audiologist offers the solution to understand muffled speech from masks

During this pandemic, we can all agree that it is a tough time to cope with all the mask regulations implemented in different parts of Florida. Normal hearing people can get by with not reading lips when a speaker wears a mask. On the other hand, hearing impaired people have a more challenging time understanding people with a mask on.  

Fortunately, Starkey hearing aid users are in luck because the manufacturer released a feature called “Edge Mode.” This feature will help clarify the speech of people wearing a mask. From muffled voice to clear voice! From lots of background noise to little background noise! It is easy to access this feature by simply tapping on the hearing aid.”
