Technical Services

Our expert advice and assessment is provided free of charge by our team of specialist staff.

Advances in technology mean that there is an ever increasing and constantly improving range of products available to help people who are D/deaf or hard of hearing to enjoy a better quality of life.

These ‘aids to hearing’ offer practical solutions to some of the more frustrating problems of everyday living and enable Deaf or hard of hearing people to participate in activities the rest of society take for granted.

DSN’s knowledgable and experienced Technical Services staff are uniquely placed to offer the best advice and to recommend the most suitable equipment to meet each individual’s needs.

We can help you…
  • Follow your favourite TV soaps
  • Listen to the radio and music
  • Use the telephone
  • Hear and see the doorbell ring
  • Use alarm clocks, baby alarms and smoke detectors
  • Become more out-going

Demonstrations can be arranged by appointment either in your home, or in any of our centres.
