Oh wait - like so:
Or just use a speaker?
I feel a bit mean to keep saying no to the things people are suggesting, I know it gets frustrating to offer help and all you get to hear is 'but I can't because'
I've tried the headphones but don't like them.
I'd go for the speaker option but my hearing isn't what it used to be and I need a certain loudness if I can't see the lips of the people talking. I don't want to go upsetting the people in this block of flats middle of the night when I often start listening again if I can't sleep, which is every night, bar one night last week when I started my new pain meds.
But thanks for your suggestions, Wolfgang, it's very kind of you for looking and trying to help.
