Posted on February 8, 2024

  • The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) thinks it’s possible for all cell phones in the US to work well with hearing aids.
  • On January 26, 2024, they asked for people’s comments about how this requirement could be put into effect.
  • They want comments on topics including:
    • Using Bluetooth to connect between wireless handset models and hearing aids
    • Using a specific Bluetooth technology or letting the market decide
    • Including volume control in the requirements
    • How much time to give companies to follow the new requirements.
  • People can provide comments online or ask for help if they need help providing their comments.
