How does it work?
Find a helpful volunteer in a gold shirt at the entrance of The Hobby Center.
They will ask which type of device you want to use. Whether you have a hearing aid, cochlear implant or no hearing device at all, they will set you up with an assistive device that will allow you to hear the performance clearly. The only requirement is temporarily giving them your driver’s license, which you will receive once you return the equipment.
Remember, The Hobby Center has other Assistive Devices, including those for the vision impaired. So enjoy your next performance to the max by taking advantage of this advanced technology!
A special thanks to Judi and the volunteer team at The Hobby Center for allowing photographs, video and inquiries.
