We use two systems of hearing assistance, infra-red and induction.
Sound from the lectern including voice, computer and video presentations are broadcast through infra-red signals.
Infra-red rooms have this sign in the room
We have replaced the old Sennheiser IR neck loops with Listen IR LR-5200 devices. These offer better quality sound and are charged from a standard USB charger
To convert the infra-red signals to a signal that your hearing aid can pick up, your hearing aid must be switched to the T-position (not all digital hearing aids feature this setting).
Borrow a Listen IR receiver
Neck loops and chargers are available to borrow:
You can download basic instructions.
Induction loops are indicated by this sign in the room
To use an induction system, no extra hardware is required - you should just turn your hearing aid to the T position.
System availability is shown on our rooms pages (ADF login required).- look for the equipment type 'hearing assistance". The type - induction loop or infra-red - is shown in the notes for the room.
