Phonak Roger — Bridging the Understanding Gap for Children with Hearing Loss
Average day in a classroomClassroom discussions play a key role for teachers and students. When a topic is discussed, a simple question can spark interest and inspire kids who may not otherwise get involved. It creates an open dialogue between students and teachers while helping to strengthen language and verbal skills. Interactive class discussions have been found to represent one third of a student’s learning opportunities in school.1
Learning made easier with RogerDeveloped by Phonak, the Roger for Education portfolio is built with over four decades of excellence in designing hearing solutions for children. Roger is the adaptive digital wireless standard that offers outstanding performance by improving the signal-to-noise ratio. This enhances speech understanding in noise.2
Maximum performanceIn order to learn via auditory information and understand context, a student must have access to the clearest sound possible. These skills are not only required for successful academic progress, but also necessary for social development. With the best ever speech-in-noise performance and documented improvements of up to 35% over Dynamic FM and 54% over other FM systems,3 Roger is a class above the rest.
Roger’s brilliance lies within the combination of its innovative technology and ease of use. With its simple network setup, there are no frequencies to plan or manage. Whether for one student or many students in a classroom, using Roger is as easy as ABC.
Automatic microphone modeFully automatic microphone settings allow for optimal use with minimal intervention on the part of students or teachers. The right microphone mode is automatically chosen based on the orientation of the device. This makes it easy to use on a daily basis for teachers and students.
Intuitive indicator lightsRoger features an indicator light concept across the devices which is clearly visible and easily understood by both students and teachers. The indicator lights confirm the operational status of each device, whether on, off, charging, muted or being used with multiple people talking in a network.
One-tap connectionConnecting microphones and receivers has never been easier. Simply position the Roger Touchscreen Mic close to a receiver or other Roger device and tap `Connect’.
Full compatibilityRoger is compatible with almost every hearing instrument, cochlear implant and bone-anchored hearing device. It also allows multiple microphones and media devices to be connected, creating a network for multiple talkers and audio for full classroom interaction. For flexible integration, the new Roger microphones are compatible with existing Roger receivers, Roger classroom microphones and soundfield systems. RogerDirect™ Roger can now be wirelessly installed into hearing devices with RogerDirect, giving children the proven benefits of Roger3 without the need to attach an external receiver.
