Sound detectors

It’s possible that users with hearing impairments can’t detect certain sounds. Therefore, when a sound is detected, provide feedback using a visual or vibration alert.

Mute all sounds

Prevent users with hearing loss from disturbing people around them with unexpected sounds generated from their devices.

Left/right sound balance

For people with a different degree of hearing loss in each ear, provide an option through which they can change the left/right volume ratio.

Mono audio

For users with hearing loss in one ear, provide an option through which they can change the audio setting to Stereo or Mono when they use earphones.
