The WYO Theater installs assistive technology for the hearing-impaired

The WYO Theater in Sheridan recently installed an assistive-listening technology that helps the hearing-impaired to better enjoy the many cultural, musical, film, and stage productions that the theater regularly hosts.


“It’s called T-Coil technology [and] the system itself is referred to as a hearing loop,” said Erin Butler, Executive Director of the WYO Theater. “It’s copper wires that run in and out the seating area and that enables anyone who has T-coil technology, which most people actually do in their hearing aids, they just might not know it, to get that enabled and then they are able to connect to the sound system when they walk into the space that is hearing-loop enabled.”
