In more ways than one, it is horrible to be underprivileged. It can be worse for those among the underprivileged who are suffering from some form of physical or mental disability or another. But speak to any wheelchair bound or hearing impaired person and you learn to appreciate just how resilient they can be under challenging circumstances. They’ve had years of experience to adapt and prepare themselves for leading as close to a normal life as possible.
It’s fairly more awkward and sometimes downright difficult for those who, after enjoying normalcy for most of their lives, suddenly find themselves bereft of hearing or even developing a speech impediment. Not that there is anything to be ashamed about, it becomes embarrassing to have to ask work colleagues, especially supervisors or managers, to repeat themselves. Negativity and narrow-mindedness, if not, impatience, sometimes prevails on the side of the respondents.
Microchip and Bluetooth technologies can help the underprivileged overcome all such scenarios in a heartbeat. It is as quick and easy as that today. One big concern among the underprivileged are cost factors. At its inception, Bluetooth applications were quite expensive. Today, as technologies advance and demand in general increases, prices are gradually driven down. This is all positive. It’s cost effective for the manufacturers to reduce their prices and make their products more accessible to growing markets.
Today, Bluetooth technologies are holding its own for and on behalf of the hearing impaired. Much confusion has already been cleared up for new users on first experiencing the technologies. A sense of amazement and appreciation prevails after experiencing firsthand how remote and convenient the software is. Ironically, less advanced hearing aids are now more expensive and proving to be cumbersome in today’s busy work and social environments.
