Difficulty conversing on the phone is a common problem for individual's with hearing loss. The quality of the transmission and the presence of background noise complicate the ability to understand what is being said. This often leads the individual with hearing loss to avoid phone conversations almost entirely.
In October, SoundFest released the RealClarity app to help those with hearing loss hear conversations more clearly on a smartphone. The app is designed to filter out background noise and promote the speaker's voice. The user can also create programs for different listening environments. The RealClarity app is available for Android™ devices and iPhones®.
