    Beethoven only noticed he was starting to become deaf in 1798, when he was 28 - he said that it was after a fit he suffered. By 1802 it had already deteriorated quite markedly. However, he could still hear speech and music relatively normally until about 1812 (according to Czerny). By 1814 he was almost entirely deaf.

    He never suffered from blindness, although he did wear glasses at some points in his life.

    No, he was born neither and only gradually went deaf in adulthood.

    Maybe you were thinking of Helen Von Keller?

    No, he was born neither and eventually went deaf. He was not blind.

    No, and no one has ever suggested he was. Until now...

    No.  He was never blind, and he became deaf as a child.  His father beat him.

    He was never blind and he was not born deaf. He became deaf gradually, well into adulthood.
