The math around the new requirements can be a little confusing so we created an ADA Compliance Assistive Listening Calculator. All you have to do is plug in the capacity of your venue and it outputs how many assistive listening devices and how many neck loops you need to meet the standards.
The ADA Compliance Assistive Listening Calculator App is also available as a free app for iPhones and iPads at:
iTunes Media > App Store > Productivity > Listen Technologies Corp. (ADA Compliance Assistive Listening Calculator)
Knowing that it would take time to change, and time to institute the change, the government gave us a deadline of March 15, 2012 to bring all future projects into compliance. This date specifically addresses:
1. New construction projects
2. Remodel or retrofit projects
I recently kicked off Listen’s Quick Info Webinar series with “What You Need To Know About 2010 ADA Assistive Listening Changes & Compliance Deadline.” Watch this 24 minute webinar for details about what has changed, impacts to projects, understanding the math, enforcement, and the ADA compliance deadline.
