Rochester is very fortunate to have live captioning at many of our theatres.

Question: If you have a hearing loss and the sound on your television is not intelligible you can try:

A. Using what is termed the "Blast" approach. Adjust the sound to the point just below the point where the television speaker breaks ("tears the cones" and or "rip the surrounds").

B. If you have a predominantly  high frequency hearing loss increase the "treble" setting, if you have a predominantly low frequency hearing loss, increase the bass setting.

C. Visit the Rochester Chapter's Assistive Device Demonstration Center to find out if there is a device to help.
