Good News for the Hearing Impaired

Good News for the Hearing Impaired

With Mary Poppins set to open November 25th, now is the time to make sure your hearing aids are ready. The Auris Loop hearing assist system has now been installed in the Shuswap Theatre. It will make it much easier for those with hearing difficulties to catch all the dialogue. 

You will need to check with your hearing aid provider to make sure your hearing aids are equipped with a “T-coil” (about 70% are) and get it activated. That’s all there is to it! Your hearing aids will pick up the magnetic signal generated by the loop and suddenly everything will become clearer.
