LE MESSAGEUR – 2015

Le Messageur is a cooperative and participatory enterprise (société coopérative et participative or SCOP) that offers innovative services enabling people with hearing loss to access communications.

Working alongside associations, Le Messageur aims to raise public awareness of the challenges associated with hearing loss and promote the spread of tools improving access to all areas of social, professional and civic life for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

  • Induction loop sound systems, improving sound quality for hearing aid wearers

2/ Making telephony accessible to people who are oral deaf (deaf and able to talk), deafblind, or using sign language in partnership with Websourd (a cooperative and participatory enterprise offering accessibility services for deaf people)
