Transcript

  • 1. These technological advances ensure that hearing loss doesn’t have to prevent you fromenjoying your life to its fullest.
  • 2. Hearing Loopsand Telecoils
  • 3. Two of the most difficult listening environments for someone with hearing loss are situations that require1) Separating the sounds you want to hear from background noise 2) Picking up sounds from adistance, such as in church or at a concert.
  • 4. Even the newest, most technologicallyadvanced hearingaids and cochlear implants cannot accomplish this completely.
  • 5. The good news is that most of today’s hearing aids and cochlear implants are fittedwith a telecoil, a small coppercoil that can be used to bridge the space between a hearing aid or cochlear implant and the source of the sound, helping to eliminate background noise.
  • 6. When the telecoil is used with a hearing loop system, whichconsists of a microphone to pick up the spoken word, an amplifier and an induction loop, the person with hearing loss can hear sounds spoken into the PA system’s microphone instead of the hearing aid or cochlear implant’s internal microphone.
  • 7. Many venues have already been looped including theatres, places ofworship, banks, airports, m ass transit systems, hospitals, and government buildings.They are identified by the logo on the right.
  • 8. Hearing loops can double hearing aid and cochlear implant functionality, and using the telecoil feature in conjunction with a hearing loop or a wireless assistive listening device, is a cost-effective way to improve theusability of your hearing aid or cochlear implant.
  • 9. These technological advances ensure that hearing loss doesn’t have to prevent you fromenjoying your life to its fullest.
