What We Do

We assist others to remain on the job and to understand the speech of others by sharing information and resources on assistive technology. We have worked with entertainment venues to offer captioned theater performances and advocated for assistive listening systems in a variety of settings and for captions at public events at the University of Oregon. We have also worked with hospitals and medical providers to help them understand hearing loss and to provide needed accommodations and  created a low cost Hospital Kit for use by consumers who don’t hear well.
