iPhone application launched by RNID

April 29, 2010

The Royal National Institute of Deaf People (RNID) has launched a new iPhone application. The application is the latest version of RNID’s popular Hearing Check, which, according to the charity, has been used so far by over half a million people, and measures a person’s ability to hear someone speaking when there is background noise. The Hearing Check application for the iPhone and iPod Touch will allow users to check their hearing for free.

RNID’s Chief Executive, Jackie Ballard, said: ‘This is a fantastic new way to encourage people to value their hearing and check it regularly. The Hearing Check application offers quick results and confidential advice from anywhere with a decent phone signal.’
