Listen Technologies Corporation is adding to its award-winning Listen EVERYWHERE product line. The company announced a dedicated Listen EVERYWHERE receiver making the Listen EVERYWHERE assistive listening system compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The LWR-1020 receiver is available as an add-on to existing Listen EVERYWHERE servers in the market.
“Listen Technologies pioneered audio over Wi-Fi for assistive listening and continues to develop this powerful technology and add to the popular Listen EVERYWHERE product line,” said Maile Keone, president, and CEO of Listen Technologies. “We are thrilled to bring the dedicated Listen EVERYWHERE receiver to the market and help venues meet the audio needs of their guests so they have a positive experience and will want to return.”
Listen EVERYWHERE works on a venue’s existing wireless network. The Listen EVERYWHERE server sets up easily and broadcasts any audio across the network and over Wi-Fi to smart devices. Venue operators can customize the Listen EVERYWHERE app with welcome videos/ads, brand colors, sliding banners, and logos.
To access Listen EVERYWHERE for assistive listening, guests download the free Listen EVERYWHERE app on their smartphones, select their preferred venue audio channel and hear clear audio in their headphones via their devices.
Listen EVERYWHERE streams audio over Wi-Fi to personal smart devices so they function as receivers for assistive listening systems. Venues with Listen EVERYWHERE can now offer dedicated Listen EVERYWHERE receivers to guests who do not have or prefer not to use, their smartphone to stream real-time audio. Having dedicated Listen EVERYWHERE receivers to offer guests, in addition to neck loops and signage, ensures venues are in full compliance with ADA requirements for assistive listening.
“We have heard from channel partners that their customers want an ADA compliant assistive listening solution that utilizes audio over Wi-Fi technology,” said Cody Hall, product manager at Listen Technologies. “The complete Listen EVERYWHERE offering with dedicated receivers meets that need. It is an incredibly powerful system that is easy to set up, easy to operate, and easy for guests to forget they are using it while they hear clearly. What users won’t forget is feeling included and engaged.”
