What is Assistive Listening?
Have you ever tried to hear what someone is saying underwater? It’s almost impossible. You can perhaps hear sounds, but have difficulty making out actual words. Believe it or not, this condition typically occurs when the spatial acoustics of a certain setting are not quite up to snuff, such as a noisy restaurant, place of worship, lecture hall, or other large open-space venue. For situations like these, assistive listening devices can help hearing aid users hear and comprehend speech better.
