Wow! Thanks. This is very helpful especially about the lack of captioning on video appointments. I’ve never had one so wasn’t aware of that and didn’t think about it. Raises another issue with Microsoft Teams and Zoom.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

LOOP. I'm not sure but I saw an illustration and it looked to be how to give veterans the " run around".
There isn't Close captions in the Video appointments. Which the DOJ requires.
There is an online portal for veterans to access their medical records called " Blue Dot " You can get about everything except an audiogram from the audiology department. Or anything from audiology for that matter.
In Spite of having a secure message app on their website. Medical personnel seem to insist on calling when they know you are HOH. That works to their benefit and if one uses secure messaging. you can get banned and even put on a " Disruptive Behaviour Veteran" and a flag is placed in your records, So being HOH at the VA is Punished .
I have been banned and am still on the DBL.. Even after they admitted they were wrong to ban me from secure messaging.
