Dr. Samy and Dr. Houston will discuss what can be done to improve the quality of life in acoustic neuroma patients who have hearing loss and/or tinnitus.  AN patients often suffer from many symptoms, and most commonly those include hearing loss and tinnitus. They may have several options available to them to treat their AN, including observation, radiation, or surgical treatment, however, their symptoms may not change or may even get worse. While these symptoms can be life-altering, one is not doomed to live without a sense of hope and optimism. 
Whether you are newly diagnosed or years post-op, please plan to join us for this very informative session.

A: Yes. All you need is a good internet connection (good enough to watch a YouTube video, for example) and the link in your confirmation email.  It should be noted that some places of business have firewalls that prevent employees from accessing this type of event.  If that happens, the webinar will be accessible as a recording and available on the ANA website.

Q: Can I use my tablet or smartphone to view the Webinars?
A: To join a meeting from an Apple iPad or iPhone, iOS 4.3+ and the ReadyTalk Mobile for iPad app are required.  You can also join from an Android phone using Android: 4.1+ and the ReadyTalk Mobile for Android app.  The ReadyTalk mobile app is available as a free download from the App Store (Mac) or from Google Play (android). To view our webinar from your desktop computer or laptop, just use the link in the confirmation email that you will receive after registering.

ReadyTalk is now using an HTML5 participant interface that should improve your audio experience.
Here is some helpful information to insure that your audio is of the best quality:

  • For the best experience, use the current version of Chrome or FireFox browsers to join the event.
  • If joining using Internet Explorer 11 or Safari 9+ browsers, you may be asked to download a rtaudiovideowplugin. This plugin is needed to be able to listen to the audio from these browsers. You will only need to download it once for this and future meetings unless there is an update.
  • If joining with Edge, Safari 8 and below, or IE10 and below, you will need to have Flash installed and enabled to join the event and listen to streaming audio.
  • With the new interface for Chrome, FireFox, IE11, and Safari 9+, the chat window is closed by default.  To chat, please click the blue talk bubble in the bottom left hand corner.
  • If you are not hearing audio through your computer for this broadcast audio event, please choose the “Join with our Flash version” in the Settings menu
