It is the Law August 1, 2019

We are coming upon a critical juncture in time where the law will require us to operate behind our vehicles in a hands-free manner. Breaking the habit of driving with one hand on the steering wheel and one hand on our phones will not be easy for everyone. This means it is high time that we activate our voice command options. Many hearing aid manufacturers have in recent years come up with devices that make it convenient to be hands free.  Furthermore, hearing aids come with devices that allow you to use voice command to make calls and even stream music.

What is Voice Command?

Voice command is the ability to communicate with your electronic device/s without lifting a finger. Artificial intelligence responding to the sound of your voice has never been easier. There are several different electronic assistants available to be used.

You can utilize Seri, Google, or even Alexis to aid you in making a smooth transition into the realm of hands-free streaming. Hearables and hearing aids come with their own pieces and ideas allowing you to become hands free and focus more on what matters.

Here is a listing some of the manufacturers and associated devices that will help us evolve safely into the era of hands free:

Hearables:  For people with normal or mild hearing loss
