An Assistive Listening Device (ALD) is any device that helps you overcome your hearing loss. Usually the term ALD is applied to personal devices that transmit, process, or amplify sound, but usually not used to refer to hearing aids. The term may also refer to alerting devices such as amplified alarm clock, smoke detector, baby monitor, door bell or an amplified telephone.
ALDs bring distant sounds directly into your ear and can reduce background noise. Some people incorrectly believe that ALDs are only for people with very serious hearing losses. It’s true that ALDs can be a big help for them, but it’s also true that ALDs can help people with milder losses … even people who don’t wear a hearing aid.
Many public accommodations such as theaters, movies, auditoriums, banks and churches will have ALDs to loan to patrons.
ALDs can be used without a hearing aid with the “user interface” being a headphone, or earbuds, but they are especially effective when used with hearing aids.
