Assistive technology for people with hearing disabilities either amplifies sound or converts it into visual or tactile signals. These products are designed to assist deaf and hard-of-hearing people who need help with communication, access to media, and awareness of the sounds around them.
Assistive listening devices, also known as hearing assistance technologies, enhance hearing for persons who are hard of hearing.
A variety of AT solutions is available to assist the deaf and persons who are hard of hearing with communicating face to face and over the phone.
Instead of auditory signals that a hearing-impaired person cannot hear, sound alerting systems provide alternate alert signals, such as flashing lights, vibrating, etc.
