Auxiliary Audio for Hard of Hearing

We install an application on the users android or iphone that rebroadcasts the audio to headphones connected to the smartphone.

The user may hear the original speakers live audio before the audio rebroadcast from the smartphone device. In this case, the speaker can only use amplified audio from one point. We suggest an amplified mini lectern.
