Assistive Listening Technology Loan Program
The New Jersey Assistive Listening Technology (ALT) Loan Program provides FM amplification systems for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
The ALT Lending Library has two types of FM systems available: a Personal FM System, and a Wide Area FM System. The personal system can also be used in conjunction with a conference microphone. The wide area system can use its own microphone, or the sound system in an auditorium or other facility can be plugged directly into it.
If you’d like to borrow one of these systems, you may go to one of the participating loan libraries throughout New Jersey. To see a list of libraries, click the following link – Libraries with Assistive Listening Devices. You may also go to your local library and ask for the equipment through the New Jersey Interlibrary Loan Service for Libraries.
