AN INTERVIEW WITH BETH GRAHAM
The ATB Financial Arts Barns box office and theatres are equipped with hearing loops (T-Coil Loops) for patrons with hearing loss. These loops transmit directly to a hearing aid or cochlear implant electromagnetically, with no extra equipment.
To use the system:
Ask your hearing aid provider to activate your t-coil function.
When you arrive at the theatre, switch your hearing aid to your t-coil function and adjust the volume as needed.
Those without hearing aids can also utilize a portable headset receiver. Units are available to rent for free from the box office, and are available on a first come, first serve basis.
