This survey-based study investigated the the perception of deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) individuals’ perceived need for technologies that may facilitate communication when meeting in small groups with hearing colleagues. Participants were 108 DHH postsecondary students who participated in co-op (internship) and capstone experiences at workplaces with hearing employees within the past two years. Participants’ responses to a survey indicated that they were generally not satisfied with their current strategies and technologies for communicating with hearing persons in small groups.
