Hi everyone,

We have a hard-of -hearing student attending an in-person class. She emailed my manager with the following question, and I thought that perhaps someone on this list might have a solution.

<student's question>
At the moment, I use the AI media for captioning services, and they use my audio input connected through a zoom meeting. I am wondering if there is software that would enable me to use my cochlear "headphones" and listen to that same audio stream? I am just finding the lag time of 5-10 seconds is long in some circumstances, and then I am not picking up any of the students questions/comments in class.

I've tried connecting into the Ai Media - Zoom meeting with my headphones, but unfortunately my own input isn't played through the speakers/headphones. I had a microphone that I used to provide to a lecturer to help me hear them, but I no longer have a clip for this and I think it would be better to try and use the single microphone than provide two.
<end student's question>

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
