IFHOH and WFD joint statement:
ASR is not ready for TRS and Captions

Hearing Loops and Telecoils: When will they become obsolete?
International Hearing Access Committee (IHAC), had published its first statement. According to this statement, Hearing Loops and Telecoils should not be replaced by new technologies, before these new technologies are fully matured and carefully examined by end users.
Initiated by IFHOH and hosted by DSB, the 4th International Accessibility Conference on Hearing Loops and Hearing Technology (Future Loops), was a great success. At the end of the conference, IFHOH, DSB and EFHOH signed a conference statement about accessibility for HOH persons in large venues (October 2017)
