Free online training on T-Coil technology for hearing aids

August 28, 2012 by cpehrson

The Utah Assistive Technology Program (UATP) will present a FREE online interactive training, T-Coil: A hidden benefit to hearing aids, on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. 

This free training, presented by Mitch Moyers from the Utah Division of Services to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, will cover a feature that many hearing aids have, but are often ignored, or unknown. Many people are not aware they can have this feature included as part of their hearing aid, or are not familiar with the technology.

This training will cover how a T-Coil benefits the hearing aid user and what accessories are available to promote better hearing and access to hearing aid users. Bluetooth may be all the rage, but the T-coil has long been a cheap and reliable technology for many users.

Mitch Moyers is currently the Outreach Program Manager at the Utah Division of Services to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, where he also oversees the assistive technology program. His duties include research for new, emerging technology for Deaf and Hard of Hearing consumers. With the rapid advance of technology for hearing-loss in the market today, Mitch hopes to be able to make sense of it all!
