Hearing assistance

A Hearing Loop is a sound system that enables people with hearing aids or special receivers to hear sounds generated through suitably placed microphones or equipment such as Television sets, Radios, CD Players or Cinema Screens. Hearing loops usually provide a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting. Loops can be fitted in many places including at reception desks, in auditoria, living rooms and even as part of intercom systems. Providing a hearing loop where possible is good practice, will increase access, improve the quality of life for people with hearing aids and may be required as part of the equality act 2010. This video Benefit of a loop system was created by Audiologist Juliette Sterkens to show the benefit of a loop system in use in a church.
