Topic: Advocacy During the Pandemic: Tips and Resources for People with Hearing Loss

When the pandemic hit and shutdowns across the country began, HLAA immediately pivoted from our day to day advocacy to working on providing information and education about how to survive the pandemic with a hearing loss. In this webinar, we will talk about what HLAA is seeing and hearing across the country and will provide tips and resources to help you advocate for access during and after the coronavirus pandemic.

Registration is required for HLAA webinars. Should you have any questions, please contact webinars@hearingloss.org.

Helpful Hints and Tutorials

  • Zoom concerns have been addressed and procedures will be modified as Zoom continues to update their software. The main security issue was with open meetings. When you register, it creates a unique link for a password protected session.
  • Use a computer. If possible, attend the meeting on a computer rather than via a smart phone or iPad. This will give you the best layout to view the captions as well as other meeting features.
  • Captions will be provided either on the Zoom screen or through enabling subtitles on Zoom. How to See Closed Captions in ZOOM
