I tend to do so at a meeting if I am recordign it.

One advantage to waring an in-earphone in such situations is that if you
have them conected to the machine your recording from, you can hear
everythingn in the room, such as those quietly spoken people.

This also helps me as I have a hearing loss in my left ear and have done so
from day one.

I use earphones all the time in meetings. Like you I use the in ear variety.
I don't believe anyone has ever commented on this, or (to the best of my
knowledge) looked at me strangely for doing so. At least, not that any of my
colleagues has ever mentioned.

Hi all

Thanks to Collin for a most interesting article.

I want to pick up on one point in the article, where one of the contributers
suggests that it's rude to ware headphones at a meeting.

I have to say that I do this all the time, usually because it's my job to
take a note of what's being said.

I use the small in ear headphones.

I also have my laptop, on which I take notes (and on occasion do other
stuff) and essentially I was wondering if others take a view on this matter.

I'm not sure that braille would really be less obtrusive.

N.B. this is not a braille good speech bad or vice versa issue, I'm looking
for views on this specific point.
