But both times, I had to sort of hold IT's hand and go "Okay, so we go to this particular website, which is the Connevans website, which sells everything that is sort of hearing aid friendly. And I said, "So you pick a phone from this selection here." But I - it wasn't something I could just to go IT and say "Can you get me a phone that uses a T loop?", because they didn't know what a T loop was [laughing].
