40 yo Woman Hears for the First Time



Jo Milne has been deaf since birth due to Usher syndrome, a rare and incurable genetic disorder that can cause hearing loss and visual impairment. Now, at age 40, her new cochlear implants are allowing her to hear for the first time.

Milne, from Gateshead, U.K., was actually fitted with the implants in February, and had to wait more than a month for the emotional moment when they could finally be switched on.

"The switch-on was the most emotional and overwhelming experience of my life and I'm still in shock now. The first day everybody sounded robotic and I have to learn to recognise what these sounds are as I build a sound library in my brain," Milne told The Journal.

Milne is also able to listen to music for the first time. Her friend Tremayne Crossley, who posted this video to YouTube, put together an "Introduction to Music" playlist—including Prince, Bruce Springsteen, The Smiths, and Nirvana—which was played out for Milne on BBC6 Music earlier this week.

The first song she heard? John Lennon's "Imagine."

well said. I was thinking the exact same thing. She was completely overcome with emotion; like emotion overload.

And, it seems the professional working with her is enunciating her words very carefully.

However, I don't know how music would work. And if there's anyone else who knows more about this, I'd be interested in knowing as well.
For the hard of hearing/deaf people who have suffered total hearing loss, it's hard for them to get a understanding on music, in terms of lyrics and sounds. But they can pick up the "bass" of the music, if that makes sense.

And they also use lip reading as well. I know I have used it, as it worked to my advantage on situations where, for instance, if I'm swimming, I don't have my hearing aids on, but it's still good to be able to communicate with others, just have to remind them to slow down a little bit so I can see their face.

It really depends on each individual, I would imagine.

I'd also like to make the point that legally blind does not equal total blindness. Legally blind is defined by 20/200 or worse vision, meaning they can see at 20 feet what individuals with normal vision can see at 200. So, she probably has some vision, which she can use for lipreading with the therapist sitting so close.

so you're saying that the simply red should sit at least 20 feet away on their date?
