Agendas and minutes
In the Council Chambers, an induction loop system is provided for hearing device users. To use:
- Someone with no hearing aids will need a loop receiver with an earpiece or headset.
- Someone with hearing aids and NO T-Coil will need a loop receiver with an earpiece or headset.
- Someone with hearing aids and have T-Coil in the hearing aid will change the setting of the hearing aid from microphone to T-Coil. They will NOT need a receiver as the T-Coil in their hearing aid is the loop receiver.
- Not all hearing aids have T-Coils because of the size or money, so they are limited.
