Update Smithsonian Folklife Festival Audio Looped!

June 26, 2013 in Advocacy & Access, Community Events, Community News

Update on the Smithsonian Folklife Festival:
Enjoy Great Sound with an Audio Loop!

By Cheryl Heppner, NVRC

We’ve just learned that the Smithsonian Folklife Festival will have audio loops at several locations. This means there will be great fun for individuals who have a hearing aid or cochlear implant with a telecoil to experience speech and music with greater clarity.

You can find the audio loops on the map for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival at http://www.festival.si.edu/2013/2013-festival-map.pdf, I spotted the icon for Audio Loop in eight locations. By the way, I discovered that the map enlarges if you double click on it.
