Technology

HEAR

· Induction Loop Assistive Listening Systems provide a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid / cochlear implant when set to the ‘T’ – Telecoil setting. The hearing aid / cochlear implant picks up sound directly from the neck-loop. (Think Bluetooth.)

The Telecoil is easy to activate + pre-installed in cochlear implants and most hearing aids. An underutilized asset if there ever was one! Telecoil promotion will increase foot traffic to the disAPPility Studios / Conservatory / Theater, which are hard–wired with the Microloop III system. Telecoil equipped hearing instrument users move around freely, instead of being confined to the Listening Studio. (Think Wi-Fi.)

· Mimi Sound Personalization: Turn up the detail, not the volume. For those with slight hearing loss, who do not require a hearing instrument

Mimi Sound Personalization

Music Signature is Mimi Sound Personalization for hearing instruments.

SEE

· Music Visualizers generate animated imagery that follows loudness, frequency spectrum, and rhythm of audio music. This imagery looks cool, but the context is vague. What additional data is required for Deaf / Hard Of Hearing / Hearing persons to understand & recognize Music Visualizer signatures? Music Visualizer 2.0 development is HIGH PRIORITY.

· Automatic Speech Recognition converts spoken words into readable text. Automatic Speech Recognition cannot penetrate music. This is why Automatic cRaptions on YouTube suck. (Click CC, lower right corner.)

FEEL

· Haptic Audio System vest / bodysuit feels the bass, by immersing your body in a low-frequency, high-fidelity audio environment.

Haptic Audio System + Induction Loop = Surround Sound Speakers?
