Assistive Listening System Information


The local business Accessible Hearing Solutions is providing assistive listening technology to improve accessibility for attendees who are hard of hearing.


The conference will be equipped with an Induction Hearing Loop for both the presentations and the registration desk. Attendees who have a hearing aid or cochlear implant with a telecoil can directly access the conference audio to help overcome the effects of background noise, distance, and reverberant acoustics in the room.  



To use:  set your hearing aid or implant to the “T” or “telecoil” setting.  For the registration desk, make sure to stand within one meter of the counter loop.  For the presentation, make sure to sit in the designated area that is looped.


If you have hearing aids or a cochlear implant and you are not sure if the device has a telecoil, ask your hearing healthcare provider.  If the telecoil is inside, request that they activate it for you prior to attending the conference.


For attendees who do not have telecoils inside their devices, or who do not have hearing aids at all, a number of personal assistive listeners/headsets will be available for loan.  Please ask to borrow one at the registration desk and return at the end of each conference day.


Look for the international symbol of access (above) for hearing loss for the designated areas
