Hearing Access & Innovations’ approach gets results!

“Janice Lintz came to my attention many years ago when I was acting Chief of Staff to the Director of the National Park Service. In that role, I fielded the public comments, both positive and negative, about their experiences in national parks. Janice’s call stood out, because she was not only adamant about an accessibility issue, she knew the NPS could be better and she wanted to help. From that day, Janice has assisted the National Park Service in not only achieving its written policies for being fully accessible, but also raising the bar for the NPS to achieve an even higher standard in many of our parks. Janice is tireless, dedicated and effective in assisting organizations like the NPS ensure all Americans have the opportunity to have a high quality experience.”

National Park Service

“Janice Lintz is the consummate advocate for people who are hard of hearing. Prior to meeting Janice, we had not realized the impact of having products that would help children who are hard of hearing relate their real life to their fun life. Since meeting Janice in 2005 we added a beary fun toy hearing aid to allow kids to dress their bear like them. Janice also helped us spread the word and the product has allowed us to connect with the audience who is hard of hearing in a special way. Janice’s passion and advocacy has stayed with me and also inspired me in my work since retiring from Build-A-Bear Workshop. I am forever grateful to her for allowing us to make a difference!”

“Janice Lintz is a tireless advocate for people with disabilities. She has given freely of her time and energy in her work on behalf of people who are hard of hearing, and has, over the years we have been associated, become a committed and knowledgeable resource for the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC). Simply put, we have benefitted greatly from her unselfish pursuit of transportation equity for the disability community. Her passionate and compelling support of the TLC’s recently-passed rule requiring taxicabs and for-hire vehicles with hearing induction loop technology to be identified with decals inside and out resonated with all those who heard or read it. Her knowledge invaluably informed the TLC’s work in this area, dispelling guesswork and allowing us to work with the utmost in accurate specifications so that persons who are deaf can identify and enjoy the benefits of this technology when hiring a vehicle in NYC.”
– Meera Joshi, Commissioner
NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission

“Janice is a tireless advocate for those with hearing and other disabilities, and is relentless in her efforts to bring about change against all odds—never taking no for an answer. I have seen and experienced firsthand her effective advocacy for hearing induction loops in taxicabs, and other issues, and she is a true champion for those who are unable to navigate for equal rights and change.”

New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission
