Most people experience some degree of hearing loss as they get older. It is a common problem caused by noise, aging, disease and/or heredity and the experience of having a hearing disability, from minor hearing loss and tinnitus to total deafness, is individual to each person.
According to the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI): “Some people with auditory disabilities can hear sounds but sometimes not sufficiently to understand all speech, especially when there is background noise. This can include people using hearing aids.”
Designing for those deaf and hard-of-hearing can be easy and inexpensive, for example, the most common solution is adding captions whenever a sound appears. Essentially, making a website, or software more accessible to those experiencing deafness or hearing loss, makes your digital spaces more accessible, and you’ll reach more people. We’ve put together a list of what to be aware of when designing for users with auditory disabilities.
We have created an infograph to help illustrate what to be aware of when designing and developing for people deaf or hard of hearing: Designing for users that are deaf and hard-of-hearing
