Also A Contacta InfoLoop induction loop system has been donated to the Traverse City State Theater by Dr. Sandra Leahy and Dr. Kathleen Sawhill of Hearing Solutions of Northwest Michigan.
This loop system provides hearing accessibility for people with hearing impairment in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act of 1995. It is the most advanced and versatile range of loop systems available and it has been donated to promote better hearing and hearing accessibility.
People with hearing aids that are equipped with a telecoil (telephone program/switch) are able to listen to the movie (or presentation) using their hearing aid in its telephone program. The audio signal of the movie will be transmitted directly from the theaters sound system to the person s hearing aid. The loop system significantly reduces background noise, making listening clearer and easier. Note that at this time the system is only available on the main floor (not the balcony). The system also includes four portable headsets for people who are hearing impaired and do not have hearing aids equipped with a telecoil. We hope this will make you movie going experience more pleasurable.
