Future of assistive listening
Julian Pieters
Managing Director
Ampetronic
Abstract:
We will paint a picture of where hearing loops are headed in the foreseeable future. We will talk about why loops remain relevant as assistive listening device, despite being such an old, analogue technology. What needs to happen to replace loops and telecoils, and over what time period? We will also talk briefly about other technology developments in hearing aids, and in assistive listening technologies. We will reference the ways that loop system technology continues to develop, as well as ways in which loops continue to evolve and be adopted into new applications.
