Re: Portable Telecommunication Devices for the Deaf (TDD)
Portable loop systems are quite a powerful
advertisement for hearing loops, since they can be demonstrated

In Washington state, we are very fortunate to have a hearing
loop program through our state ODHH office.
Assistive Communication Technology
(ACT) Program | DSHS (wa.gov)
Washington state residents can request the Contacta portable
loop system to be set up for meetings.
From the ODHH website:
We also have a Portable Room Loop Kit that can be installed in
smaller meetings or conferences to provide people with a hearing
loss that wear hearing aids or cochlear implants with a t-coil
switch to amplify audio sounds in the room for better hearing.
Individuals who do not wear hearing aids and have a medium to
mild hearing loss can wear headphones with a receiver and
receive good audio amplification.
