Assistive Technology

ODHH Assistive Technology and Hearing Aids

Assistive technology is technology that provides Deaf or hard of hearing individuals with improved accessibility in various environments. Assistive technologies include alerting devices, telecommunications devices, and assistive listening devices. As with any technology, assistive technology prices will vary and it is important to compare prices. Most devices can be found through a search engine online (i.e. Google) and some devices can only be purchased through mail-order companies. Other devices may be easily found at local chain stores.
