Information at a Glance

The information included on each hearing poster is easy to read. There are snippets of information, Dos and Don’ts, pointers, and simple tips for viewers to use in their daily routines. These reminders inform viewers about how to make life easier for CI users in a variety of different settings, such as at home, at school, or in noisy work environments.

Since each hearing poster is designed to be accessible and understood easily by non-professionals, they are heavily image-based, making use of colorful graphics and characters. The use of these elements, in combination with limited text and simple language, makes the posters eye-catching and easy to understand. The designs also appeal to a wide audience, including family members and friends of CI users, work colleagues, mainstream teachers, and even cochlear implant recipients.

Posters on Hearing Loss Designed for Clinics and Schools

Each set can be displayed in a variety of settings, including as rehab clinics, ENT rooms, audiology clinics, family doctors or GPs, schools for deaf children, schools for children with multiple needs, as well as mainstream schools. Although the poster sets provide the most information when used together, each hearing poster has also been designed to stand alone.

In order to reach as many people as possible, a variety of adaptations has been designed for the posters that appeals to different cultures. The use of simple text also offers opportunities for quick and easy translation.

Currently, the hearing poster series is available in 14 different languages: Arabic, Bengali, Bulgarian, Dutch, English, German, Hungarian, Bahasa Indonesian, Korean, Malay, Mandarin (Malaysia), Romanian, Spanish, and Turkish.
