Reading What You Hear

According to a study at the Univ. of Texas, people remember 20% ofwhat they hear. They remember 30% of what they see. But they remember 50% of what they hear and see.
Captioning for the hard of hearing is the answer. For many who attend a meeting of some kind, the normal sound system isn't adequate for them to hear everything. They feel left out.
For others, even with a loop system to use with a t-coil or receivers and headphones they still often miss what is said and They feel left out.
The best answer is to use captioning so that all can see and hear what is said.
On Nov. 2, at 7 pm. Bob Welch will speak at Northwood Christian Church in Springfield. This event will be captioned as well as provide hearing devices so all can hear. A deaf choir will speak that night and information will be available to help hard of hearing folks.
