Education Sponsorship Provides K-20 Students the Opportunity to Attend the Women Tech Awards

Listen Technologies joins Utah businesses in support of the Women Tech Council’s commitment in nurturing students’ interest in science and technology careers.

Listen Technologies is proud to announce its participation in the Education Sponsorship program for the upcoming Women Tech Awards. The Women Tech Awards, directed by the Women Tech Council (WTC), recognizes women who are leading technology companies, promoting innovation in their industry, and are making contributions to the community.

Over the past six years, the WTC has had the opportunity to honor 90 amazing women working in various technology fields and 15 university students. They’ve also sponsored over 100 high school students for the awards in order to inspire the next generation of young women.

Current Education sponsors include; Patent Law Works LLP, Holland & Hart LLP, Nelson Laboratories, Listen Technologies, Symantec, and Truenorthlogic.

When asked why it was important to be an Education Sponsor for the Women Tech Awards, Schaeffer stated, “I wanted to make it easier for young women to attend the Women Tech awards. I’m a firm believer that when these young women see and interact with the many women who’ve been nominated for awards, as well as, have the opportunity to network with other women in technical fields, they’ll see a career path for themselves in technology. The technology field needs and wants more talented, smart, young women and there’s no better way to get them involved than getting them to attend WTC events.”

Halle Veysey, a student at Lone Peak High School noted, “This year I plan to start my own club at Lone Peak High School to interest female students in science and technology. I want to spread the word to other teens that a career in technology can be fun and exciting.”

The Sixth Annual Women Tech Awards will honor 17 women in the technology field. The Women Tech Council is looking to continue its success of hosting over 125 STEM students at the awards. The awards will be announced at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah on September 12, 2013 at a luncheon.

Listen Scholarship Recipient Attends HLAA National Convention

San Francisco Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) chapter member attends the 28th annual convention and trade show thanks to a scholarship sponsored by Listen Technologies.

Listen Technologies sponsored a Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) Annual Convention Scholarship for its 28th annual convention hosted in Portland, Oregon. The HLAA Convention is the nation’s most extensive educational program and trade show for people with hearing loss.

Each year HLAA Convention attendees come together to learn about the latest assistive technology and services available to them. The convention schedule offers a wealth of workshops, presentations, vendors, and product demonstrations to inform, educate and support the Hard of Hearing Community (HoH). Events for networking and socializing are also built in to the schedule.

Scholarships are awarded to HLAA members who have never attended a convention and who otherwise would not be able to attend including: veterans, young adults and seniors. HLAA awards a full-activity package registration.

“I am grateful to Listen Technologies for making it possible for me to attend the HLAA National Convention in Portland, Oregon this year,” said Janice Armigo Brown, Scholarship Recipient, San Francisco. “It’s not every day that this many people with hearing loss are under the same roof unless they are attending a national convention. This unique experience alone is one that I will always cherish. The true camaraderie experience! I truly appreciate their interest in helping provide access to communication technology for people with hearing loss.”

“With almost one in ten people having hearing loss, it’s probably safe to say that most of us know someone who is affected by hearing loss,” noted Cory Schaeffer, Co-Founder, Listen Technologies. “The Convention is an opportunity to celebrate HLAA and its members. We are honored to support HLAA’s mission to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss. This scholarship is one way we’ve chosen to show our support and advocacy for the hearing loss community.”

Austin, Texas will be the host city for Convention 2014, June 26 – 29 for more details on the HLAA and the convention visit www.hearingloss.org.

Listen Provides Assistive Listening Solution Set for California Companies to Adapt and Adopt to the New 2013 California Building Standards Code

California Companies Get Ready for Updates to Building Standards and Accessibility Codes

California building and accessibility standards are changing and Listen Technologies is providing a solution set for California builders, architects, AV professionals and building owners to adapt and adopt the new standards for the Assistive Listening requirements.

Assistive Listening Systems, which are amplification systems utilizing transmitters, receivers, and coupling devices, are required for all assembly areas, conference rooms and meeting rooms for people with hearing impairments.

Recently, the California Building Standards Commission adopted the 2013 California Building Standards Code, which incorporates proposals by the Division of the State Architect and others to bring California codes in alignment with the federal standards outlined in Title II and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, which were revised in 2010. The new California Building Standards Code is available online as of July 1, 2013.

“More than 17 percent of the population suffers from some form of hearing loss and California is to be praised for upgrading its state laws to align with the federal ADA standards to ensure that that large portion of society is able to participate in personal, business and cultural events,” said Cory Schaeffer, Co-Founder of Listen Technologies. “Listen Technologies has made it possible for California companies to bring their buildings and spaces up to code for Assistive Listening with a package designed to provide the right technology for the right space.”

The three technologies used for assistive listening are RF (Radio Frequency), IR (Infrared) and IL (Induction or Hearing Loop).

The Listen RF System transmits a clear audio signal over radio frequencies to a personal receiver. The advantage of RF technology is that there are no “line-of-site” issues and the technology can cover a wide area indoors or outdoors.

The Listen IR System uses infrared light to transmit audio to a personal receiver. The advantage of IR technology is that the system is secure—the audio signal will never leave the room, yet the listener will enjoy consistent, pristine audio.

The Listen Hearing Loop System includes an integral wire that installed around a room in a variety of ways creating an induction field that can be picked up by hearing aids equipped with a tele-coil. More than 60 percent of hearing aids and 100 percent of cochlear implants have a tele-coil. Many venues and users alike enjoy this type of an assistive listening system because the signal is directly transmitted to a user’s hearing aid.

“When designing new building, it is important for the architect to design in assistive listening solutions as early as possible into a project,” Schaeffer added. “This makes it easier and more cost-effective to be both socially responsible and compliant with the law from the very beginning of a project.”

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is responsible for enforcing the ADA standards. The DOJ may file lawsuits in federal court to enforce the ADA, and courts may order compensatory damages and back pay to remedy discrimination. The DOJ may also obtain civil penalties under Title III of up to $55,000 for the first violation and $110,000 for any subsequent violation.

About Listen Technologies Corporation
For more than a decade, Listen Technologies has provided high-quality, easy-to-use assistive listening products to thousands of gathering places around the world including schools, houses of worship, factories, entertainment venues, government agencies and more. Listen strives to expand its legacy with products that push the boundaries of technology innovation, embracing the latest assistive listening standards and trends, and incorporating hundreds of refinements and improvements based on direct feedback from its customers. You can be assured that Listen solutions offer you even more power to cut through the clutter and overcome the challenges of hearing loss, so you can connect to pure, enhanced, and personalized audio in any setting or environment.

Free Hearing Screenings Offered at InfoComm

As part of its commitment to advocacy for hearing loss and hearing loss prevention Listen Technologies will sponsor the House Research Institute’s free hearing screenings at InfoComm.

Bluffdale, Utah, USA — The House Research Institute and Listen Technologies are teaming up to provide free hearing screenings to attendees and exhibitors at the 2013 InfoComm Exposition at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

The free hearing screenings will be available in the Audio Pavilion, Hall A, Booth #A381 during show hours from Wednesday, June 12 through Friday, June 14, and will be open 30 minutes before the show for the convenience of exhibitors. A certified health technician will conduct the screenings based on regulatory guidelines established by OSHA, and House Research Institute personnel will provide hearing health education, tips and other resources.

The screenings are offered through the House Research Institute’s Sound Partners® hearing loss prevention program with exclusive sponsorship from Listen Technologies, as part of the company’s commitment to advocacy for hearing loss and hearing loss prevention.

Sound Partners raises awareness among audio and music professionals and the listening public about the permanent hearing health risks associated with excessive exposure to sound volumes at or exceeding 85 decibels (dB), and practical protection methods to encourage the lifelong enjoyment of sound.

“We are passionate about our ongoing commitment to build awareness about hearing loss and hearing loss prevention—and as such, we jumped at the opportunity to once again sponsor the House Research Institute to provide free hearing screenings for attendees at this year’s InfoComm,” said Russell Gentner, President of Listen Technologies Corporation. “The number of people with some degree of hearing loss is staggering. In the US alone, 17 percent or 36 million Americans have hearing loss and this number is rising. We are doing our part to bring a voice to those who deserve the opportunity to fully engage in experiences in a work environment, at their houses of worship, , at the theater, at the movies, and in seminars. Hearing loss can be isolating and we want people to know they don’t have to withdraw or settle for poor sound experiences. The free screening gives people in our industry a chance to understand where they are with their hearing and what they can do to protect it from noise-induced hearing loss.”

“Listen Technologies is a strong advocate for legislative compliance for assistive listening, hearing loss awareness and prevention,” said Marilee Potthoff, Director, Community Education & Outreach, House Research Institute. “Through their sponsorship, we are able to offer professional hearing screening services and the Institute’s extensive hearing health and science expertise to thousands of industry professionals whose careers depend on hearing well.”
