PCCF aids in Auditorium Accessibility

Thanks to funding from Polk County Community Foundation, TFAC has added an exciting new tool to ensure that performances and events are more accessible.

Technicians have installed a state-of-the-art Assistive Listening Device (ALD) in the Veh Auditorium. The ALD system works seamlessly to accommodate those with hearing loss or who have difficulty distinguishing sounds in large spaces like TFAC’s 315 seat theater. With 10% of the population experiencing hearing loss, this is a vital step that TFAC is pleased to take to improve accessibility for all our patrons.

Polk County Community Foundation’s support has also enabled TFAC to upgrade the speakers in the auditorium, ensuring the world-class visiting artists are heard in their richest form. Pictured are TFAC’s expert technical contractors installing the new system.
