The FCC yesterday issued new rules requiring digital phone manufacturers to make models compatible with hearing aids. According to the new rules, in two years each manufacturer will have to make available at least two hearing-aid compatible models. In addition, large carriers will have to offer at least two compatible phones. Initially, the rules only require reduced RF emissions that might interfere with hearing aids. In three years, the rules will be extended to require a special coil in the phone to interface directly with compatible hearing aids.
