SCoD Member Info-Bites: Protocols for making meetings and events more accessible to people with hearing loss.

New survey research our member Ideas For Ears suggests that hostile hearing conditions are making meetings and events inaccessible to large numbers of people across the UK who have hearing loss. The research also suggests that the difficulties that people are experiencing are typically ordinary in their nature and can, in many instances, be fixed at little or no cost.

The research, carried out in November 2017, reveals that people are feeling frustrated, excluded, stressed and embarrassed by the difficulties they experience.  They are missing important information, are not able to contribute as effectively as they could do, and consequently are being put off attending future meetings and events.
