The first hard-of-hearing Londoner to try the £300 device said it could help make business meetings and conversations “more equal and less stressful and isolating” instead of relying on lip-reading and hearing aids.

Ms Hathway, from Hackney, said: “I really like SpeakSee so far, particularly the colour-coded microphones, which have the potential to help me know who’s speaking.”
