Classroom / Distance Learning Mash-Up Aids Student Performance

In many circles Distance Learning is seen as an alternative to Classroom Instruction. Distance learning certainly addresses some of the limitations of classroom instruction, in particular the barriers of “at this time and in this place.” Distance learning can eliminate one or both, but not without its own costs.

HLAA Perspectives on Jury Duty

As people with hearing loss we can be excused from jury duty. But is that what we want to do or should be doing? We have fought long and hard for our rights to access in all aspects of society. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title II that covers courts requires that accommodations be made for us to serve. Why fight for these rights if we don’t have the confidence to use them? Not to mention our civic duty.

HLAA Working For You: Movie Captioning

After the Golden Globe nominations were announced, I was intrigued by one of the films nominated: “The King’s Speech.” I thought I’d treat my family to a captioned showing of a first run film during the holidays. So, I visited the website http://www.captionfish.com/ to see if a theater nearby had a captioned showing. Well, much to my dismay not only did I fail to find either an open or closed captioned showing, I found that the movie has not been captioned at all for theatrical release. So much for my holiday treat for the family.

An Audio Guy Gets A Hearing Aid

I admit it, I never had my hearing checked until a few weeks ago.  That’s kinda ironic for a guy who provides assistive listening solutions!  It wasn’t a surprise to me that I have significant hearing loss in my left ear and some age related hearing loss on my right side.  Like most people, I wasn’t that interested in using hearing aids.  My “perception” was that they are for “old” people.  Of course, now that I’m 55 years old, my definition of “old” keeps changing….  None the less, it’s just not that exciting to think about wearing hearing aids.

Grants for Assistive Listening Devices

More than 30 million Americans suffer from hearing loss, according to the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Hearing aids and other assistive listening technology such as FM assistive listening systems, audio looping in public venues and churches, closed-caption devices and TTY-devices for telephones, allow individuals with hearing disabilities to lead independent lives. A number of private and nonprofit organizations offer grants for a variety of assistive listening devices and outreach services for those with hearing loss.
