Assistive Hearing Devices

Assistive Hearing Devices

Assistive hearing devices are separate from hearing aids. Some of these devices include:

 

  • Text telephones
  • Computerized speech recognition
  • Closed-captioning tv
  • Note taking

 

Text telephones: this allows conversations to be typed and read instead of spoken and heard. (modern day texting)

 

Computerized speech recognition: this device changed a spoken conversation into a word document to be read instead of heard.

 

Closed-captioning TV: every TV at least 13 inches has a built in closed captioning. This allows the watcher to read the conversation instead of having to adjust the volume according to the background noise.

 

Note taking: this allows a hard of hearing person to concentrate on listening and watching a speaker while another person takes notes. (This has been used in schools for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.)
