3.9 Assistive Listening Technology

The CMHR uses induction technology for people who are hard of hearing and who use a hearing aid with telecoil capability. The Visitor Services desk uses a broadcast device, tunable to hearing aids. The Coat Check, Security Desk and Boutique are now all equipped with counter loops. For in-gallery purposes, neck loops with volume control are available; the neck loops work in conjunction with the audio jack on our Universal Keypads. For information on Universal Keypads, see the Media Production Standards for Exhibits section of this guide.

All media presentations within the CMHR exhibitions include user-controlled volume adjustment via headphone jack or mobile application. Headphones can be requested from visitor services at no additional cost.
