Texting vs Talking on the Phone

I have a hearing disability, so talking on the phone is a struggle.  I have to concentrate on every word the other person is saying, but I still end up missing a good bit of the conversation.  It’s extremely frustrating for me to have a phone conversation.

However, texting is a breeze.  The words are right there for me to read and with the use of emojis the context and emotions behind those words is understandable.

Which do you prefer, texting or talking on the phone?
