Re: TTY/ TDD Phones support
Yes, if you are getting garbled messages or numbers and can’t read the message, interrupt by typing "STOP PLS" or XX STOP STOP CAN’T RD U XX" or "HD HD HD" and wait for the other person to respond. Then type something like this: "SORRY I MISSED UR MSG IT WAS GARBLED PLS TYPE AFTER I MEET U AT QQ" or "PLS REPEAT" or "I CAN’T RD U CAN U RD ME Q".

If the user is having difficulty inserting instrument earpeice into the ear canal, and there is also difficulty communicating to instruct, then the instrument dispenser should be allowed to instruct a caregiver in the proceedure of safe insertion and removal.
If the user is capable of grasping the proceedure after proper practice, the dispenser may work with that person, however some individuals must have a third party to help. We hope this suggestion will be helpful. Thanks for contacting FixYa.com.
i'm not aware of a tool to change batteries but Eveready sells hearing aid batteries that have a magnet on it so that you can put them in you aid easier. You can buy them at Walgreens ir CVS.
When you pick up the phone and hear nothing or a series of electronic beeps, assume that this may be a TTY call. Put the phone on the TTY coupler (usually the mouthpiece goes into the left acoustic coupler) and make sure it fits snugly into the acoustic cups. Turn on the off/on switch. (Do not assume it’s a prank call and hang up).
There are some etiquette rules that users of TDDs must be aware of. For example, because of the inability to detect when a person has finished speaking, the term "Go Ahead" (GA) is used. Commonly used abbreviations: BRB - Be Right Back; CA - Communications assistant (another term for a relay operator); CU - See You (be seeing you). GA - Go Ahead; SK - Stop Keying; SKSK - Now hanging up; Q, QQ, QM - Question Mark (?); PLS - Please; RO - Relay Operator; OIC - Oh, I See; OPR - Operator; NBR - Number; TMW - Tomorrow; THX - Thanks; WRU - Who are You? (or Where are You?); XXXX - Xs are often used to indicate a typing error instead of backspacing.
This depends on how much energy and power the hearing aid needs, how often you use it and what type of hearing aid it is. Some batteries may last days while others can last weeks. Consult your hearing professional and read through information supplied by your battery manufacturer to ensure that you follow the steps to maximize the life of the batteries.
