Listen Technologies has introduced a new ADA Compliance Assistive Listening Calculator in response to customer requests for assistance in calculating their requirements to meet the standard.
The calculator formula is based on Table 219.3 Receivers for Assistive Listening Systems from Section: 706 Assistive Listening Systems of the Department of Justice Title III of the ADA.
The table outlines the minimum number of receivers/ALDS required based on the capacity seating of assembly areas; and the minimum number or receivers/ALDs that are required to be hearing aid compatible.
Listen’s ADA Calculator allows you to enter the number of seats in a venue to calculate the minimum number of assistive listening devices and neck loops needed to meet new 2010 ADA requirements.
“I knew there had to be a quick and easy solution to repeatedly answering the question ‘What do I need to do to meet the ADA’s assistive listening requirements?,’” said Craig Paller, Listen’s Wireless Listening Product Group Leader. “Now, we don’t waste time on the mathematics, we get right to supporting our customers with the information they need.”
The ADA Compliance Assistive Listening Calculator is available as a free download here.
