How to design your game for the hard of hearing - Polygon
“Designing a game to be welcoming for players who are hard of hearing might not be as complicated as you think, but it does take a bit of education. Learning how to take the information that’s often provided exclusively through audio and present it through other means has its challenges.

“The video above, from Game Maker’s Toolkit, does a good job of discussing some of these obstacles that might not be immediately apparent to most players or developers.”

Apple's AirPods and Live Listen are a revolution for the hearing impaired — Quartz
They’re one of Apple’s newer products that have an innovative design, are functional, and have the potential to change the way we communicate. In the near term, they could revolutionize how people with hearing loss interact with the world.
Last month, it was reported that Apple would add Live Listen, a feature that allows people to hear conversations in noisy settings, to AirPods later this year. The feature has been around since 2014. It uses the iPhone as a mic and connects to Apple-certified hearing aids to amplify hearing. When the next version of Apple’s key mobile software, iOS 12, is released, AirPod users will have access to the feature, though it’s recommended that those who require hearing aids still use them and not simply rely on AirPods for clarity and amplification.
