Deaf/Hard of Hearing

The term deaf refers to people who are unable to hear well enough to understand speech, preventing the use of speech as a means for processing information. The term hard of hearing refers to people who have a level of hearing that ranges from the ability to hear environmental sounds to those who can understand speech even on the phone, usually with the help of a hearing aid. Below are a number of assistive technologies that CAP has received a high number of requests for, therefore resulting in CAP's ability to provide them to our customers as appropriate accommodation solutions for people with this disability.
