Sennheiser announced that it will be hosting a free online seminar/roundtable entitled “The Hearing Loss Community: Bridging the gap between Design, Implementation and the End User Perspective,” on Tuesday, May 24 beginning at 1 pm U.S. Eastern time that will focus on the hearing loss community experience in public venues. Register here.
The roundtable discussion is designed to “connect the dots” among end users, design consultans, A/V integrators and facility managers as it relates to ADA compliance for hearing assistance in public places. Questions to be addressed include:
— What are the hearing assistance considerations when planning a meeting space or classroom?
— Has hearing assist technology kept up with end user requirements?
— What are the meeting space and classroom requirements for ADA compliance?
Panelists include Lise Hamlin, director of Public Policy, Hearing Loss Association of America; Linda Kozma-Spytek, a consultant and professional advisor on Technology, Hearing Loss Association of America; Nick Mitchell, vice president, Sales Support Group (North America) at Diversified; Jonathan Owens, CTS-D, senior associate, Shen Milsom & Wilke; and Bob Smith – director of Classroom Innovation, Stanford University.
The discussion is open to all and will be moderated by David Missall, insights manager consultants & technical application engineer manager at Sennheiser, who notes, “I’m really looking forward to hosting this roundtable discussion on an important topic. We have a great panel of experts that are highly qualified to discuss the needs of the hearing loss community in public spaces and how technology is or is not meeting these challenges.”
