Our facility is equipped with a modern Hearing Loop System

A hearing loop in a room environment is simply a wire looped around the room with the ends of the wire attached to a special audio amplifier. The amplifier (PA system) at the Baker Community Centre is connected to various inputs such as a microphone and a CD player. The audio signal traveling through the wire loop creates an electromagnetic field around the wire. Sound from the PA system can be “heard” inside of the loop anywhere in the room with any hearing aid set to the “T” (telecoil) position, or by using a special headset available from the Executive Director. Other room sounds (such as people talking around you) are virtually eliminated due to the direct wireless connection to the audio signal carried in the loop wire from the PA system! The sound heard is tuned to your personal hearing aid. Sound clarity and speech intelligibility are greatly improved. Hearing and listening becomes more enjoyable, less tiring, less frustrating and helps you use your hearing aid for more.

Ask your audiologist if your hearing aid has a “T” coil (usually a tiny switch), if you are not sure. Most new hearing aids have it included.
