I discovered that the senior center where I attend an exercise class offers individual hearing loops, which enabled me to use Telecoil mode. I was surprised to be able to discern words in what had been mostly a wall of noise from the public address system.
The last time I attended a program at our local theatre, I heard about 20% of what the speaker said. I knew I couldn't go back. After I received BeHear's ACCESS, I contacted the theatre and was delighted to learn that they support Telecoil. I'll be back!
