Discussion Summary

Explorer Steve is looking into ways to enhance the clarity of sound in a building's meeting rooms. His research has led him to the conclusion that the wisest next step is to consult the users about what they want, and what would work best in the space.

The problems include difficulty hearing soft voices, and the inefficiency of passing a microphone around a group during a meeting. Possible solutions include a T-coil installation to augment hearing aids, closed captioning on a screen, and directional microphone arrays or steerable microphone which focuses on the speaker. All are agreed that the status quo is less than ideal.
