CHC's Guide to NYC
A guide for better communication so that everyone
can experience all that NYC has to offer.
Make it even more enjoyable with these resources.
Theater Access for Everyone
Following the dialogue and lyrics of live theater can be challenging. Increase your enjoyment of Broadway and other shows by using assistive listening devices or real-time captioning or attending sign language interpreted performances.
Make Dining Out More Enjoyable
NYC has some of the best food in the world. But, trying to keep up with conversations in noisy restaurants can diminish the fun. Increase everyone’s enjoyment by seeking quieter spots and give CHC’s tips a try for making communication better.
Get the Most Out of Museum Visits
Visiting museums is a classic way to enjoy the city. Participating fully in the tours or programs can enhance your experience. Find what is offered across the city to make these events accessible with captioning, hearing assistive devices and sign language interpreting.
Catch Every Word at the Movies
The city's wide offering of films is a favorite pass time for many. Yet, catching the dialog, voice-overs, and lyrics can be challenging. Enhance your experience by selecting theaters that provide closed captioning (CC), open captioning (OC), and assistive listening devices.
