Frequent Questions

Aren’t Britain’s thousands of loop systems in transient venues sometimes not working?

The Royal National Institute for Deaf People did find that many loops in shops and other transient venues were not working. Their response was not to discount hearing assistance in such venues, but rather to undertake an awareness campaign to see that the devices are turned on and operating, much as wheelchair ramps need to be kept open. Any assistive listening will not work unless turned on.
