(Disclaimer: I am not hard of hearing. Please correct me if I say anything stupid.)

This is a discussion I have had so many times with people who say that they are good at public speaking, they can project their voice and so they don't need a microphone. Apparently they cannot understand that the microphone connects to the hearing loop, so for people who rely on their hearing aids being switched to T and using the loop, no matter how much they're good at shouting, it won't help.

Similarly deserving of a slow death are those sound-desk operators who sit there listening and reckon that if they can hear an okay balance coming through the speakers, it's probably alright, rather than picking up the headphones in front of them to check that what's coming through the loop is also balanced okay. Remember, people, some musical instruments are acoustic, and sound loud if you have no trouble hearing, but if they aren't miked they don't come through on the loop properly. You need to adjust the sound balance for both.
