This year, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) and members of the Bluetooth community worked diligently to release comprehensive articles, presentations, and videos to showcase how Auracast™ broadcast audio will soon help overcome the challenges of traditional assistive listening systems (ALS). This new Bluetooth® capability will make broader deployment and increased availability of ALS for people with hearing loss possible while also expanding the applicability of these systems to consumers with all levels of hearing health.

Here is a look back at some of the top Auracast™ assistive listening resources released over the last year.
