Priscilla Gets Bionic Ears: Report #3

I've just learned about another blog with the account of a cochlear implant patient - a young woman who lost her hearing at 17 and regained her hearing via cochlear implants.

The following is by Priscilla Gilmore, who recently got cochlear implants (read all entries to date on this topic).

Many different sounds register the same. So tapping three different objects all result in the same ting, ting, ting. It's kind of a drag; after a while, you feel like you are in some strange cartoon reality. It's also very confusing to hear noises but have no idea what they are!

I think its the software; it's not very diverse yet because I'm still at program level #1.
