Thank you for a great article in the Northwestern about hearing loops. We would like to clarify the a couple of the technical terms.

A hearing loop consists of a wire installed around the listening area of a church, meeting room, or auditorium, powered by a loop amplifier that receives an audio signal from the PA system, or even a TV. A telecoil is an extremely small coil (antennae) embedded in most hearing aids, that receives the signal broadcast from the loop.

This allows hearing aid wearers to hear as though the speaker were standing right next to them.
