He used a neck loop with his hearing aids, and I used standard headphones plugged into the speaker outlet of the sound card using a double adaptor as we were in a public library. cheers Alan Michael Rayner ----- Original Message ----- From: "Leach, Matthew" <Matthew.Leach@dickinson-dees.com> To: "BCAB Discussion List" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Wednesday, November 21, 2012 11:03 AM Subject: [BCAB] Using screen readers and hearing aids > Good morning. > > The subject line says it all.
