What Audio Should You Feed to the Assistive Listening System?

When setting up an assistive listening system in your venue it is important to remember that speech is paramount. However, in many religious contexts and performing art venues, music will accompany the spoken word and is generally mixed through the sound system at a higher volume than the spoken word. In order to account for this, when setting up the assistive listening system, it is best to take a feed from the main (L/R or Mono) output of the console and run that signal through a compressor before sending it to the assistive listening transmitter.

New Legislation Requiring Audiologists to Provide T-coil Information

To put it simply, everyone has the right to hear what they love. I am obviously not the only one who feels this way. In an effort to spread more awareness about assistive listening, many groups are working to get bills passed in certain states that require audiologists to inform every patient about the availability of hearing aids with a t-coil switch and the benefit of t-coil.

October is National Protect Your Hearing Month

Every day we have common experiences where noise levels are dangerous to our hearing, yet most of us aren’t thinking about how to protect our hearing or the hearing of our children. We are always reminding our kids to buckle their seat belts, but we seldom remind them to protect their hearing. As October is National Protect Your Hearing Month, I feel like it’s important to shed some light on this topic and to start learning about how to prevent hearing loss.
