THE FOX CITIES PERFORMING ARTS CENTER NOW OFFERS A HEARING LOOP SYSTEM IN THRIVENT FINANCIAL HALL

The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center is the first Broadway presenting theater in Wisconsin to have this wireless assistive hearing technology installed.

The hearing loop enables people who have difficulty hearing to have far better reception than was previously possible. The loop provides enhanced hearing for patrons in two ways: 1) patrons can listen in by accessing their hearing aid’s telecoil which serves as an antenna that links the listener directly to the sound system, or 2) patrons can utilize loop listening devices available at the service desk if they do not wear telecoil hearing aids.

Hearing loop systems work with a telecoil (also known as a telephone coil or “T-coil”) control which may or may not be embedded in the hearing device. Nearly seventy percent of all hearing aids currently have T-coils.
