New App Shows When Environmental Noise is Putting You at Risk

Have you ever wondered how loud your immediate environment is? Have you ever struggled to find a restaurant that is quiet enough to enjoy dinner & conversation?

Lessersound is an application that helps you in both situations. Using your iPhone, the Lessersound application allows you to capture the decibel level of your immediate environment, gives an visual indication of the safety or danger of the decibel level, and allows you to log and share your location so other users of the application can be informed of the noise level of that time and place.

As an advocate for harmful noise reduction and accessibility issues, the Hearing and Speech Center is very happy to support such an innovative idea. Visit or visit iTunes and search “lessersound” to download the application for free today.
