            A new assistive listening system has been installed in the Courtroom to improve visitor services.  The hearing loop system will be available for use when the Court’s Term begins in October.  The new system transmits sound through an electromagnetic signal picked up by most hearing aids and cochlear implants without requiring additional equipment.  Listening devices will be available for those who wish to use the hearing loop but do not wear hearing aids or have hearing aids that are not compatible with the loop technology.  The Court will also continue to offer the FM and Infra-red listening devices made available to Courtroom visitors in the past.
