We are living through changing times with dramatic shifts in our way of life seeming to happen on a daily basis. A whole range of services and buildings which were seen as merely important just a few weeks ago are now seen as vital links in a chain that will allow everyone to endure and return to normality as quickly as possible.
Because of these unprecedented changes, many premises have had to adapt very quickly…
For shops, banks and virtually every service deemed essential, this means putting into place immediate measures to protect the health and safety of their staff and customers. Social distancing and contactless payments form a large part of these new policies, along with limits on the number of customers, specified shopping times for vulnerable and elderly customers and clear floor and wall signage to promote current health guidelines.
Crucially for the 12 million people in the United Kingdom with some form of hearing loss, It also means that plastic screening is now commonplace at many checkout counters and customer service desks amid concerns voiced by unions that the welfare of staff might still not be given as much priority as it should.
Protective screening is of course a valuable and essential tool to help prevent the spread of viruses and while all these measures are necessary and welcome and reassuring in the effort to halt the spread of the Covid-19 strain of Coronavirus, it is also more important than ever to ensure those with a hearing impairment can still access and use vital services.
Clear Audio’s speech enhancement system technology is designed to improve communication through speaking barriers such as protective screening. The highly effective system consists of a set of speakers and microphones to be installed either side of the protective screen. In some cases a combination unit can be installed on the staff side to further improve performance for those with hearing impairments.
The integral components in our speech enhancement systems have been researched designed and created in-house using all the experience and industry knowledge we have gained in our twenty five year history to deliver a reliable solution, with reduced feedback, quick and easy installation and the very best user experience for the customers and staff who will rely on them. If your business has, or plans to install protective screening in a bid to keep your services accessible, there has never been a more important to ensure they are accessible for everyone by installing speech enhancements systems.
Clear Audio Systems is here to make sure you get the support you need to do exactly that through ongoing help and advice, expert installation and the very best after-sales care.
