Assistive Listening Technologies
Teaching Spaces where Assistive Listening Technologies are installed
Assistive Listening Technologies are systems installed within teaching spaces to aid hearing impaired users. There are two types of systems, Hearing Loops or FM.
What is a Hearing Loop system?
A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting. More info can be found here.
What is an FM system?
FM systems are wireless assistive hearing devices that enhance the use of hearing aids, cochlear implants and also assist people who are hard of hearing but do not wear hearing aids, in particular over distance and in noisy environments. More info can be found here.
NOTE: Microphones must be worn in order for these systems to work
