The Music Man April 21st at the Hale Centre Theatre

HLAA-SLC and Loop Utah are joining together for a special event in April. Instead of HLAA-SLC’s regular meeting on April 21st, we will meet at the new Hale Centre Theatre (HCT) in Sandy at 11 AM in the Hospitality room for a pre-show reception. The show starts at 12:30 PM.

Loop Utah Music Man

HCT has looped both of their theatres entirely which is a real treat for those who wear cochlear implants or hearing aids. If you wear either one, make sure your telecoil program is turned on before going to the event. Hearing loops send up a magnet signal to the telecoil (also called a t-coil) which is in 80% of hearing aids and all cochlear implants. That means there’s no devices to pick up and return, it’s as easy as pushing a button on the hearing aid for fantastic sound quality. Listening through the t-coil is like having personalized speakers because each device is programmed specifically to the individual’s hearing loss. It takes away the distance gap hearing aids alone cannot deal with (hearing aids are only good in a 4-6 foot range when used alone). Many users say they hear better through a hearing loop than any other assistive listening system.

Tickets are $30 each, please RSVP by March 17th to  Tickets must be paid in advance to HLAA-SLC, also by March 17th You can stop by the Sanderson Center and drop off cash or checks to Chelle, the HLAA-SLC treasurer.  Please make checks payable to HLAA-SLC.

*Season tickets holders may book/exchange tickets for this performance bu contacting the HCT box office at 801-984-9000. 

March 17, 2018 Meeting

Hi all, we have a meeting coming up March 17th on technology.

First we’ll talk about the AVA app.  What is AVA? It’s a live captioning app on your phone. It says, “Communicate more effectively with your coworkers, in meetings, or when grabbing coffee together. Live-caption lectures, workshops, group projects and every bit of your student life.”


I’ve used AVA a couple of times and have been impressed with it (Chelle).  Come to the meeting with AVA already on your phone, it’s free to download and 5 hours a month is free too.

We will also have a short presentation on InnoCaption.  “InnoCaption is revolutionizing how those with hearing loss communicate by making it possible to use the smartphone (Android & iPhone) as it was intended – accessible, convenient, and mobile. Through the use of our patented technology in conjunction with live stenographers, we provide the fastest, easiest, and most accurate captioning for those who may need assistance hearing the other party.”

Put it on your calendar and join us, we’d love to see you all there!
