Delta Sky magazine: Salutes Janice S. Lintz

Janice Lintz, A passionate hearing-loss consultant and advocate and founder/CEO of Hearing Access & Innovations Inc., has worked with domestic and international corporations, organizations and government agencies to implement best practices when it comes to access for people with hearing loss.

The New York resident and mother of two has been working with the NYC Transit advocating that induction loops-special sound systems that provide an electromagnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by a hearing aid or cochlear implant-be included in all NYC public transportations systems. So far, loops have been installed in 700 taxis (there will eventually be 13,500) and every subway information booth and call box, as well as Amtrak’s Penn Stations and Washington, D.C. Union Station.
