  1. Having your back to the wall

  2. Facing the wall and letting the directional microphones on your hearing aids so their thing?

I had my first experience with hearing loops in 2022. I was at the HLAA convention in FL. I was in a workshop and remembered, that I had t-coil in my devices and I switched to t-coil. I was happy to hear so clear and crisp. Unfortunately, thats the only time I use the t-coil.

Welcome everyone to our ‘Improving Communication Access in Our Society’ group. To start off our discussions, I’d like to hear about your experiences. What are the main barriers you’ve faced in terms of communication access? This can be anything from subtitled content availability, sign language interpreter accessibility, to sound pollution in public spaces, or digital platforms without accessibility options. Remember, no issue is too small - often it’s the seemingly minor inconveniences that can accumulate to form substantial obstacles. Let’s brainstorm and see how we can work together to suggest viable solutions.
