This campaign will enlighten and excite hearing aid and cochlear implant users, as well as audiologists and other hearing health-care professionals about telecoils and hearing loops and their unique benefits.
Hearing loops transmit the audio from a PA system directly to telecoil-equipped hearing aids and cochlear implants. The telecoil functions as an antenna, relaying sounds directly into the ear without background noise just like Wi-Fi connects people to the Web.
The tools and resources provided below were created by a Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) and Academy joint task force. The resources may be used by audiologists, consumers, and other hearing health-care professionals to help spread the word and raise awareness of looping, telecoils, and other assistive listening devices.
