Goshawk seeks to overcome these barriers to social and economic difficulties in offering a software platform that enhances an audio signal tailored specifically to the hearing loss or needs of its customer delivered over the telecoms or IP network without the need for hearing aids or expensive accessories. Patents (filed March 2014) allow the software to be leveraged both as a service and separately into designing products that are more inclusive and understanding of those with hearing loss or needs.
