Assistive Listening Technology at Westwood

Westwood has installed Audio Everywhere, an assistive listening system. This system relays whatever is picked up by the microphones to the user’s own smartphone/tablet (WiFi capable device) and headset or hearing aids with bluetooth streamer. Ask our Sound Tech for help if needed.

Prepare ahead:

  • Download the free Audio Everywhere app from either the App Store (Apple) or Playstore (Android) to your smart phone or tablet
  • Bring headphones/ear buds, or your bluetooth streamer device for your hearing aids
  • We recommend a head set rather than ear buds, if available, to eliminate extraneous sounds that might cause interference.
  • Speak to a Greeter to borrow a head set

When at Westwood:

  • In Settings go to WiFi and choose Audio Everywhere
  • When connected, go to the Audio Everywhere app and open it
  • The app will do a Venue Scan and bring up a screen with 2 channels
  • Choose one of the channels that comes up (either will work)
  • Adjust the volume on your device to a comfortable level and you are set to listen
  • For hearing aid users do all the above and ensure your streaming device is paired with your phone or tablet.

Note: for WiFi connected to the internet choose “Westwood” in your Settings
