COVID-19 safety measures, including face coverings and protective screens, have created communication barriers for people who are deaf or have hearing loss.
Hearing loops and associated equipment are now more important than ever which is why we’ve introduced speech transfer systems to our range of products.
What is a speech transfer system?
A speech transfer system improves two-way communication by providing a microphone and speaker for the hearing aid user and staff member. The microphone on the staff member’s side is connected to a hearing loop for easier conversations through safety screens and barriers.
Clearer sound for everyone
Face covering and protective barriers can block sound and muffle speech for hearing people as well as those who are deaf. Plus, not everyone with hearing loss uses hearing aids with a hearing loop setting. A speech transfer system will provide clearer sound for all customers and staff.
