By donating your old hearing aids to Chicago Hearing Society's Hearing Aid Bank, you can help ensure everyone has the opportunity to improve their quality of life through better hearing. Chicago Hearing Society accepts donations of new and used hearing aids, which are reconditioned and reprogrammed for qualified individuals through our Hearing Aid Bank.
When people do not qualify for Medicaid or other public benefits they can apply for our Hearing Aid Bank, which charges on a sliding fee basis. Thanks to contributions from foundations and individual supporters, qualified individuals are offered a hearing evaluation, hearing aid consultation, hearing aid fitting and follow-up care after the hearing aids are dispensed. The Hearing Aid Bank is at the heart of Chicago Hearing Society's Hearing Health Clinic. The program has been going strong for more than 50 years, but your help is needed to keep it going.
The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) is thrilled to share that a new online closed captioning deadline is upon us -- March 30, 2013. The NAD was a key leader along with other consumer organizations in the push to pass the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA) which requires access to online programming that has previously been shown on television with captions. Following the passage of the CVAA, the NAD participated heavily in the FCC rulemaking process where the FCC established specific rules for the enforcement of the CVAA. The FCC published its rules for Internet captioning last winter and in the spring released a schedule of deadlines.
