Anabaptist Disabilities Network
"Accessible Technology," ADNotes April 2013.In today’s world, technology has great potential to make it easier for persons living with disabilities to participate in the body of Christ. That potential can be compromised, however, if congregations overlook the problems technology can present for people who see or hear less well than average.
Sometimes the terms "hearing impaired" or "hard of hearing" are used to describe people who have a mild to moderate hearing loss.
The needs of people with a mild to moderate hearing loss are different from the needs of persons who have little or no hearing, usually described by the word "deaf." See our Deafness page.
