Are you working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic? Are you finding yourself tired and “zoomed out” from video conference meetings?
What you’re experiencing is the same attention tiredness as a person with a hearing loss experiences all the time when they listen with the help of a hearing device. It takes an enormous amount of concentration to ‘get’ what’s being said.
Deafness Forum’s chairperson David Brady knows the feeling well.
Like so many people, he spends much of his working days in virtual meetings online.
It might not have occurred to you that this feelking of being “zoomed out” is how it is every day for their entire lives for 3.5 million Australians who have a hearing difficulty.
