    Are there any deaf iPad users who are members here? I'm from Great Britain and I do not have an iPad yet but will be getting one for Xmas.

    If there are any other deaf members here, do you find the iPad more helpful in your life? What do you think of the iPad?

    23 years on tanks left me deaf. My new hearing aids came with an (optional) Bluetooth device, quite small which hangs around my neck and is tucked into my shirt. It can be paired to my IPad 2 allowing me to hear all the music on my pad without disturbing my family. It also connects to TV, radio et al. Great when flying to a holiday destination.
