I had a question today about bluetooth and hearing aid compatibility.
This inquiry pertained to telecom products, such as wireless earpeices
that interface with cell phones. However, I am aware that other products
(non telecom) can utilize bluetooth technology as well.
If bluetooth is known to not pose a problem to hearing aid and cochlear
implant users, is this something the TEITAC would like to recommend that
the Access Board explicitly mention in an advisory note? Maybe the
wireless industry can help inform this discussion.
However, instead of getting technology-specific, this topic could be
part of a more general discussion about the parameters of magnetic and
radio emissions that may be cause for concern. Then companies can
consider those parameters in the design of new product types.
