A fascinating article Bill, thank you. In England the estimate is that 20% of people are affected by hearing loss, particularly with their communications. A significant proportion also have difficulty with communications, sometimes due to ASD. The techniques you used so effectively don't just apply to the deaf but to everybody and will help to include those with a range of communications disorders. I agree with you that a a simple catalogue of tips for helping us to communicate would be invaluable and as you saw it ain't rocket science. You conversation with Jenny was a signpost. Where might it lead?

That about the audio files is something I run up against from time to time. To be honest, there really isn't much that can be done in that situation other than creating two e-mail lists. That could, however, be a sharp double-edged sword. So long as your friends know it's a shotgun list to your friends, there really shouldn't be a problem. It's great to see you thinking about it, but I wouldn't worry about it too much.
