Accessibility for people with a hearing loss

Accessibility for hard of hearing people means a broad range of assistive technology both for the individual and/or society in order to remove barriers and avoid new ones. EFHOH has published its own guidelines on accessibility for hard of hearing people.

These guidelines include sections concerning basic needs like hearing aids and other assistive technologies such as subtitling, captioning, and hearing loops.

You can download the guidelines here

EFHOH also conducts surveys about the situation of hard of hearing people in different European countries and shares it with its stakeholders. To view our reports, go to Resources
