Last year we went out of our way to help people with special
requirements. There was a box on the registration form to request
various forms of assistance. I have just checked, and zero people
mentioned hearing aid loops or requiring audio assistance of any form
on the form. That's why we didn't provide a hearing aid loop -- no one
asked for one.

On the other hand, the vision impaired delegate as well as a variety
of mobility impaired delegates did manage to tell us of their needs,
and we helped them as much as possible.
