Note: If you are a normal hearing person you (in this demo and in real life) will be less challenged by a distant loudspeaker and by distracting noise than is a person with hearing loss. For a more dramatic hearing loop effect, consider the difference in a larger room--such as in the church below.

This demonstration was created for hearingloop.org with support from www.contacta.co.uk (which provided the idea and a model for the graphic design) and from www.hearingloopsystems.com (which did the audio recordings).
