Face masks are now an everyday accessory, “staying in” is the new “going out,” and you guessed it, video chatting is a necessary element of our social fabric and remote work. It’s all part of the new normal.
For those with hearing loss, these changes haven’t been as seamless. As you or a loved one may have experienced, masks muffle speech and inhibit lip reading cues, complicating simple interactions; and video conferencing audio is far from perfect depending on your Wi-Fi connection. Our Mask Mode feature helps resolve these challenges by creating a custom memory that boosts the frequency response in certain channels for Circa wearers in select technology tiers.
To help get you started, we’ve put together some tips to make the best of your next video chat, whether it’s with your boss, your close friends or family.
