HLAA Files Comments on Hearing Aid Compatible Cell Phones

Feb 11 2015

HLAA is working to see the day when all hearing aids and cochlear implants link to any cell phone so well that consumers never hear the sound of annoying interference ever again. In fact, we have long sought rules that would mean that all cell phones would be hearing aid compatible. The FCC has asked for comments in their latest Public Notice, and HLAA responded, with the help of other consumer groups, ALDA, TDI, NAD and DHHCAN. In these comments, we urge the FCC to require all wireless mobile phones to be hearing aid compatible. At a time when consumers are abandoning landline phones at record rates, it simply makes sense that the FCC act to ensure consumer with hearing loss do not have to struggle to find a phone that works well with their hearing aid or cochlear implant.
