Hearing Access Protocol is launched - a charter for Meeting spaces to assist hearing impairment

Updated: Aug 20, 2018

Ideas for Ears today launch #HearingAccessProtocol, which provides guidance on how meetings & events should be run so proceedings can be heard & followed by everyone, whatever their hearing ability.  Acoustics, is one of its 5 must do points it includes, where it states "Be aware of noise and poor acoustics. Be extra considerate of the hearing needs of others when speaking in a room that has poor acoustics or background noise. Even slight noise or echo can make listening much more difficult. It can also create considerable discomfort for some. "
