The S sounds are starting to annoy me which is probably very ungrateful of me considering that they are very high frequency sounds and I should be chuffed to blazes to be able to hear them. The problem is that they make my front teeth hurt. Like fingernails on a blackboard – apparently.
This is the case especially when I am watching TV. We’ve tried to adjust the sound on the set so that they are less intrusive but with no luck so the only alternatives are to either turn the volume down or to put up with it. Usually I put up with it as long as possible and then turn the TV down a little. I’ve been able to make out a fair bit of the TV now without captions which is bloody marvellous and I presume that the addition of all those extra S type consonants is contributing to that. So I guess I need to learn to live with the teeth effect. Maybe it wears off after a while??
Does anyone know??
