TecEar promotes hearing assistance technology (HAT)
and information about hearing loss that is educational and beneficial to
businesses, organizations and individuals with hearing loss.
Who We Serve
People with hearing loss represent a growing and
diverse cross-section of society with many different levels of hearing
disability. People with hearing loss attend school, church, work, concerts,
movie theatres, conferences and meetings. They require the opportunity to listen as clearly as
possible so that they can talk on the phone, watch TV, eat out at restaurants
and generally participate in the activities of normal life.
TecEar assists businesses that seek
ways to comply with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA) by providing 'accommodation' and assistive listening devices (ALDs) to employees and
TecEar offers solutions to IT professionals
tasked with researching assistive listening devices for hearing-impaired
TecEar helps people who are hearing-impaired
manage their hearing loss and discover useful products that can help them
hear more clearly in difficult sound environments.
Hearing loss is an under-publicized and costly health issue
millions of people. Noise
induced hearing loss (NIHL), recreational or work related, is largely
preventable. Unfortunately, what you don't know can hurt you. Increasing public awareness about the dangers
associated with exposure to loud noise, and
educating people about ways to reduce the risk of irreversible hearing
loss, should be high on the national agenda.
Acknowledging hearing loss and seeking professional help is
the first step on the road to self-help. Unfortunately, researching and
purchasing appropriate hearing aids and assistive listening devices can be a
bewildering and expensive task. There are no objective resources for consumers
to compare products. Consumers must rely on the guidance of friends,
salespeople and audiologists in their attempt to make informed decisions
concerning a complicated and confusing array of technologies. In the end,
purchasing decisions will be personal and subjective, based upon research, persistence
and trial. What is good for one, may not be good for another. As the
adage says, “the proof of the pudding is in the eating!”
A Brighter Future
Hearing Assistance Technology (HAT) is an evolving and growing
industry that is being transformed by a convergence of technologies from the
hearing aid, computer, cell phone and wireless communication industries.
For instance, the demarcation between hearing aids and Bluetooth wireless,
is increasingly blurred. Digital signal processing, once used exclusively in
hearing aids, is now being included in telephones, headsets and other
listening devices. These are exciting times with potential for wider social
acceptance of hearing devices and a lowering of production costs that will
benefit all who wish to hear with greater ease and clarity.
