In this episode of AV TechTips, Almo Pro AV takes a close look at how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) impacts AV installations.
We know the ADA prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of disability. But did you also know it covers programs and services provided by state and local government, as well as goods and services provided by private companies in commercial facilities?
This means that in every space where audible communication is necessary, accommodations should be made for hard-of-hearing people.
This could be true in spaces like classrooms, lecture halls, courtrooms, theaters, concert halls, arenas… the list goes on. Sound familiar? These are exactly the spaces commercial integrators are working in every day. Incorporating assistive listening services in public and commercial spaces will ensure compliance with the ADA, as well as increase the products and services you can offer to your customers.
Learn the details and fundamentals of this law and how to implement such services into your projects. It isn’t just about making your system louder; it’s about making it easier to hear and understand content. You can incorporate radio frequency, infrared, t-coils, or other solutions.
