“Church Resources for Hearing Loss,” Ensign, July 2005, 72
Do you have difficulty participating in Church meetings because of hearing loss? Depending on how long you’ve experienced diminished hearing, you may not be aware of Church resources available to you. Many Latter-day Saint meetinghouses are equipped with listening devices (small remote receivers connected to the speaker system). They allow you to sit anywhere you desire and still hear the speaker. Contact a member of the bishopric if you would like to use them. If you are having trouble hearing in classes, see if the teacher will use a microphone. To further assist you, Church videos and satellite broadcasts are available with closed captioning. Also, closed captioning is available at many temples. Simply call ahead to inquire and make arrangements.
