Audience members who have difficulty hearing can now use assisted listening devices to improve hearing ability. The devices look like a portable music player but receives only the audio that is fed through the auditorium’s sound system. So, guests who are hard of hearing can wear the headset and adjust their own listening volume.
There are about 30 devices available and getting one is easy.
“Audience members can just come see me or any member of the stage crew to request a device,” said Mike Lent, Director Of Stage and Lighting at Cobleskill-Richmondville High School.
