Telecoils, Hearing Loops and Auracast: A Hybrid Solution to Client Satisfaction

Course: #39392Level: Intermediate 1 Hour
Live WebinarFri, Nov 15, 2024 at 3:00 pm EST

The performance of hearing aids in meeting rooms, theaters, and houses of worship is greatly enhanced by assistive technology: hearing loops, FM/Infrared assistive listening devices with neckloops as mandated under Americans with Disabilities law, and, hopefully soon, future public Auracast systems, but only if users have hearing devices that can connect to these systems. This course will cover the basics of telecoils (T-coil programming, verification, and validation), how Auracast figures into this, and a brief overview of how you/your clients can foster future proof hearing access in the community.
