671. Telecoil Compatible Headsets

Some hearings aids have a special feature called a telecoil, which allows the sound from a telephone or other sound source to be sent directly inside the hearing aid for customized amplification. Connecting via telecoil also helps to limit the impact of background noise on the listening experience. Another name for a telecoil is t-coil.

A specialized type of headset may be needed in order to make the most of a telecoil enabled hearing aid while using a telephone.  An audiologist or other may be helpful in determining whether or not a particular person is using a telecoil enabled hearing aid and would benefit from a telecoil compatible headset. You can also contact a hearing aid manufacturer or distributer for information on the features of the hearing aids that they carry.  It is best to have the brand name and model number handy when inquiring about the features of a hearing aid.



672. Telephone Amplification

Telephone amplification can be of benefit to some individuals who are hard of hearing. Amplification can be achieved through many assistive technology solutions, such as an in-line amplifier, portable amplifier, amplified phone, personal amplifier (assistive listening device), t-coil compatible headset, or clarity amplifier.

Choosing the right amplification solution may take some time. Individuals are encouraged to try various assistive technology solutions until the right product is identified. Many vendors and manufacturers offer money back guarantees on the products they sell. Contact the vendor for more information regarding return policies.

It may be helpful to contact the State Assistive Technology (AT) Project for assistance in selecting an amplification product. State Assistive Technology Projects are funded under the Assistive Technology Act of 1998 (P.L. 105-394). These projects can provide technical assistance on assistive technology, consultation, product demonstrations, equipment borrowing, and low-interest loans for individuals with disabilities.



673. Telephone Clarity

Telephone amplification can be of benefit to some individuals who are hard of hearing. For many people with hearing loss, the ability to hear high frequency sounds is severly compromised. Telephones (and amplifiers) with Clarity technology not only amplify sounds, but also make sounds clearer and easier to understand. Clarity technology helps people understand the difference between high frequency sounds like "ch" and "st", making conversation much easier for people with hearing loss.

674. Telephone Flasher

When a phone rings, these devices will flash a light or turn a lamp on and off. Works with analog and digital phones.



675. Telephone Light Sensor

A telephone light sensor can be held over a line to indicate if a line is lit steady or blinking. Line status is signified through audible or vibration.



676. Telepresence

Telepresence refers to a type of technology that allows individuals to have a virtual presence in a location they are not physically present in. This can be anything from videoconferencing to robots controlled by the remote user.



677. Telescoping Cameras

Telescoping cameras allow individuals to transmit video images from high and low areas to eye level via a telescoping pole.



678. Telework, Work from Home, Working Remotely

Telework, within certain fields, can be an excellent alternative for employees who have conditions that make it difficult for them to leave their home or reliably travel to a place of work. Employers should consider if a job can be made compatible with telework for their employees and communicate their expectations and requirement for the job to be performed out of home. Allowing work from home during worksite or office construction; extremely hot, cold, or inclement weather; or parking renovations could be a reasonable accommodation. Learn more about telework:
