Hearing the birds chirp or children laughing is often taken for granted. For those who are hearing-impaired, today’s technology can work miracles.

For Hearing Week 2014 (23-29 March), The National Foundation for the Deaf is highlighting the importance of technology aids and their benefits on the lives of hearing-impaired people.
