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.
