T-Coil Hearing LOOP & Assistive Listening
The MainStage Theater at the Mosesian Center for the Arts is equipped with a T-Coil Hearing LOOP System. Patrons with hearing aids and cochlear implants can set their devices to “T-Coil” to take advantage of the assistive listening system.
Alternatively, patrons wishing for assistive listening devices may pick up a headset from the Box Office upon arrival at the theater.
What is the t-coil loop and how does it work?
A hearing loop is a hearing assistive technology that improves hearing understanding through hearing aids, cochlear implants, or headphones. Hearing loop users will directly and wirelessly receive clear sound without any background noise. Hearing aids must have a small wireless receiver called a Telecoil or T-coil installed. Most T-coils come free inside hearing aids but may need to be activated by an audiologist or hearing instrument specialist. The T-coil program, often used for hearing on the telephone, is accessed by pushing a button on a hearing aid. The T-coil can make a noticeable difference in hearing understanding when combined with hearing assistive technology, bridging the physical space between the listener and the sound source.
Is your hearing aid t-coil enabled?
If your hearing aid can be activated to pair with phones or other microphone accessories, you should be able to connect to the loop. If you do not have a T-coil enabled hearing aid and would like to take advantage of a T-coil Assistive Listening Device receiver, please pick one up at the Box Office before the performance begins. The hearing loop is made possible by the generous support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s Cultural Facilities Fund and the Richard and Susan Smith Family Foundation.
