    Explanation
    The ability to communicate effectively can be influenced by various factors, including the environmental setting. One factor is the presence of other noise in the area, which can be overwhelming for someone who uses a hearing aid. This can make it difficult for them to hear and understand what is being said. Another factor is the reliance on additional signs for individuals with hearing impairments to understand communication. These signs help them to better comprehend the message being conveyed. Additionally, it is important to consider one's position in relation to space and positioning during communication. Standing or sitting too close to someone can make them feel threatened, which can hinder effective communication.
