Nyack theater unveils tech to help hearing impaired
A Nyack theater has unveiled technology intended to help those in the audience who are hearing impaired.
The Elmwood Playhouse installed a new hearing loop, which feeds sound directly into the hearing aids of those wearing the devices.
The goal is to give everyone attending shows to have an equal chance of hearing and enjoying the performance.
The tech will be used for the first time for the opening of comedy production "Harvey." To tune in, a wearer's hearing aids must have what's called a T-coil; however, those that don't have T-coils can easily be fitted with them.
"Harvey" runs until Feb. 6.
