Technology/ More Hearing Aids

From the pages of RNID, One in Seven.

Telemole Subtitle Recorder through VCR, early 1990's.
This was a fiddling contraption to use, it had 4 buttons for programming (date & times), But the box rest ontop of the VCR which meant you have to be on your hands and knees to program the recording ? Guess what ? No remote control ? At the same time, your VCR have to be programs with exact details in order to get Subtitles on your video cassette !!!! Argh

Helen Chapman's 'Philips Barrette KL6000' hair slide design hearing aid 1959, made in the Netherlands. Supplied by the National Health while living in Ireland.
