Accessing Visual Information
Accessing Audible Information
10 individual hearing neckloops are available on request for visitors in the Planetarium.
The neck loops work with all hearing aids, digital or analogue, when switched to the T setting.
The loop system will only work if you have a neck loop on. The system won’t work if you just set the hearing aid to T when you come into the Planetarium.
The neck loops can also be used with headphones to aid customers who don’t wear a hearing aid, but are hard of hearing.
For hygiene reasons, we cannot supply headphones, meaning customers have to provide their own.
If you require a loop when visiting the Planetarium please make yourself known to the Planetarium staff when you arrive at the Planetarium, and we’ll be happy to furnish you with one and suggest the best seats to be in line with the transmitter. We are also happy to adjust the volume during the show if you are having problems hearing anything that’s being said.
