    I take my mother-in-law to all of her doctors’ appointments. Her heart doctor is, I believe, Chinese. He has a real thick Asian accent and a stutter. I do my best helping MIL to understand, but it can be difficult. He is patient with us and has a good sense of humor. He is recommended in this area as one of the best at what he does so we just all work at understanding one another. Hey, what if all the people in the world did that?

    Put the words to a song. See if that helps. Think of a rhyme, make it flow

    Coaxial cable? Must be for digital signals. Back at the phone company we used coax for DS3/STS1. DS1 was just plain wire.

    As to the “ear buzz”, Wiki has a rather long entry claiming that:
    Tinnitus is common: about 20% of people between 55 and 65 years old report symptoms on a general health questionnaire, and 11.8% on more detailed tinnitus-specific questionnaires.

    Audio studio patch panels use co-ax jumper cables with jack plugs between studio patch points, mixing desks, recorders etc.

    I wonder if he would have an easier time texting. He could type it out and hold it out to others to read.

    Non fluent aphasia generally affects ability to spell or write messages. And getting tense because one can’t get the messages across will exacerbate both aphasia and stuttering. It can be a serious bummer!

    I have it. A constant ‘Dial Tone’ in my head. On occasion one ear or the other will start to hum on its own over and above the dial tone. Makes it hard to understand the spoken word especially if there is any background noise.

    Leo doesn’t seem to have PTSD, at least not too bad a case. What he has is aphasia, difficulty speaking due to a brain injury. Most people hearing him would just consider him “stupid” and dismiss him. "Ear buzz’ is common in the recording and broadcasting industries; everybody turns the volume up too far.
