Induction loops installed in teaching rooms and reception

last modified Aug 08, 2013 02:07 PM
Induction loops for the hard of hearing have been installed in the department's teaching rooms and reception. The reception loop is on all the time.

 

In both seminar rooms the amplifier needs to be switched on at the wall and the user then continues as normal. In the main lecture theatre nothing has changed, however in the Part II Lecture Theatre the user will need to wear the microphone provided if necessary. Induction loop users should switch their hearing aids to the T position to hear the lecturer speak. Please also see the Disability Resource Centre website.

The department will switch to Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) between Tuesday the 27th and Thursday the 29th January 09. BTinet engineers will tour the building changing most old phones to the new cisco hand sets and will be on site the next day to help deal with "finger trouble". Key staff will have received training before the roll out and there is a help line on 37070. More information can be found at www.phone.cam.ac.uk.

Update: The VOIP system was installed successfully and is now fully operational within the department. (02.04.09)
