During Covid when it became common on TV to interview people in there own homes, I missed what they were saying because I was trying to see the books on their shelves behind them or guess if they were in their attics or basements according to the furniture or pictures on the walls. I can be distracted from the news by a reporter's unusual necktie or jewelry. On television with TIVO, I can rewind. In person, simply saying "Pardon?" is sufficient for the person to repeat or rephrase.
