November Meeting Recap

Terry Krutz, the owner of http://loopamerica.com/ gave an illustrated review of hearing assistance systems, with special emphasis on induction loops.  He demonstrated a chair pad loop and other products available at LoopAmerica.  A lively discussion followed.

The December meeting will be our traditional Holiday Party.  Watch for details here.

Note:  We do not meet in January and February.

    Do you know where I can locate the names of Movie Theaters and theaters that have loops installed in the Western Suburbs and Philadelphia. I live in Bryn Mawr.
    Thank you

      I don’t know of any theatres that have loop systems in the area. Movie theatres are supposed to provide hearing assistance, but compiance is pretty spotty. They typically may provide IR-based systems, which are not subject to spillover, which is problematic for multiplex theatres

      You can find movie theater captioning information at:

      and a discussion of efforts to advance captioning at:

      There are not many venues with loop systems in the Philadelphia area; most are churches.Efforts are just getting underway to change that.
