Enabling the Connected Home for Seniors with the ZVOX AccuVoice AV200

Those of us with elder parents  can relate to having to repeat ourselves or turn up the television due to audio challenges with seniors.

Age-related hearing loss (presbycusis) is one of the most common conditions affecting older and elderly adults. According to the Canadian Hearing Society more than 60% of seniors over the age of 65 have a hearing loss. Approximately one in three people in the United States between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss, and nearly half of those older than 75 have difficulty hearing. The impact of hearing loss can be dramatic as some seniors become nervous, isolated and feel trapped because they cannot hear the telephone, doorbell or even watch television.

Designed for baby boomers or anyone who has trouble deciphering dialogue from TV programming our friends at ZVOX Audio have unleashed the AccuVoice AV200 Sound Bar TV Speaker that utilizes ZVOX’s patented technology to lift voices out of the sound track, modify it and then makes the voices understandable.

Installation of the ZVOX AccuVoice AV200  is as simple as

  1. Place the speaker anywhere in front of your TV
  2. Connect Power Cord
  3. From the TV to the ZVOX Speaker Connect the Optical cable to this Optical jack
  4. Turn down your TV’s sound and turn on the AccuVoice TV Speaker

In addition to the amazing sound the ZVOX AccuVoice AV200 also has a cool feature that enables you to sound level those annoyingly loud commercials. Simply push the OL button and the speaker will soften the sounds when the commercials come on.

Today’s technology can keep seniors engaged, connected, mentally active, and physically safe.  Audio enabling technology from ZVOX Audio  holds great promise to make life better for the elderly.  Great for seniors and audiophiles alike the ZVOX AccuVoice AV200 will make a wonderful Christmas gift.
