Wisconsin Governor’s Council Advocates for Telecoil Inclusion on Hearing Aids

The Wisconsin Governor’s Council for Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf-Blind now advocates for automatic inclusion of the telecoil option (also known as a T-coil, T-switch or Audiocoil) on all hearing instruments sold in the state of Wisconsin unless omitted by documented, informed consent of the hearing aid purchaser at the initial examination for fitting and sale of a hearing aid.

The Council feels it is extremely important that, prior to selecting a hearing aid, every potential hearing aid purchaser in Wisconsin is informed & educated by their licensed  hearing health professional about the benefits of t-coils for use with telephones, hearing loops & other assistive listening devices.
