Speak & Listen (speech-to-speech) users can phone 1300 555 727 then ask for 03 5232 9400.

Hearing loop at Rae St. Customer Service
Colac Otway Shire has a counter hearing loop situated at the Customer Service Desk at the Rae St. office in Colac.

If you wear hearing aids fitted with a ‘T’ switch; move your hearing aid setting to the ‘T’ switch, the customer service staff member’s voice will then be transmitted directly into your hearing aids and you will be able to hear them clearer.
Portable Assistive Listening Device
Colac Otway Shire has a portable, wireless, phonic ear system available for hire for use at meetings, education and training, conferences or events.

The system includes a microphone, transmitter and three receivers. It works by amplifying and delivering sounds directly to the listeners ears either through headphones or through hearing aids if they are fitted with a ‘T’ switch.

For further information, or to make a booking, contact the Rural Access Project Officer on 5232 9420.
