A Guide and a Code of Practice for Assistive Listening Systems
Hearing loss affects approximately 12 million people in the UK and is often termed the ‘hidden disability’ as it may not be immediately obvious. Even with hearing aids speech from more than about 2 metres away can be difficult to understand.
An assistive listening system (ALS) can help make up for this shortfall by eliminating the acoustic space and its associated noise and reverberation, and bringing the wanted speech or sound directly to the ear or hearing device of the listener.
