35 million Americans.

That’s how many U.S. adults report some degree of hearing loss, according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD).

Sprint has substantial experience and a longstanding commitment to providing services that are helpful to this community. We’ve also found some apps that can help protect hearing, conduct a hearing test or keep you up on the latest news concerning deaf and hard of hearing.

These are some of the apps we found in the Android Market:

DeafNation The DeafNation app is a trusted one-stop center for deaf and hard of hearing news including sporting events, conferences and the latest technology updates for the deaf and hard of hearing community.

Hark Hark enables users to test their hearing. Test results are published anonymously and can be compared against the average for the users age/gender. The app also can use generate test tone frequencies. This app should not be used in place of seeing a doctor.
