Figure 1_Assisted Listening System

Recently upgraded LEMP registrar rooms include IR-based Assisted Listening Systems. These systems send all audio being projected in the rooms speakers, to individual body pack receivers that can be worn by users with hearing disabilities. Users have the ability to control volume and listen through an earpiece (3.5mm jack) or neck loop lanyard that is connected to the body pack receiver.  These systems work through line-of-sight between the receivers and transmitters. The transmitter is usually located in the front of the room under one of the webcams. If you have questions regarding this system in a specific classroom, please contact our help desk at 315-443-2677. As the receivers work off rechargeable batteries, you can request a device through contacting the building coordinator or our help desk.
