The International Federation of Hard of Hearing People (IFHOH) is a global organization. It represents late deafened adults and cochlear implant users. It also represents people with Tinnitus, hyperacusis, auditory processing disorders, and others. Meanwhile, the organization has more than 40 national member organizations around the world. IFHOH also promotes awareness about, and accessibility for hard of hearing people. For example, IFHOH has position papers on improving accessibility and other topics.
Meanwhile, IFHOH has consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. IFHOH also is a member of the International Disability Alliance. Most IFHOH members are people who do not sign. But Deaf people who sign usually join the World Federation of the Deaf.
The IFHOH website has some accessibility features for people using screen reading software. For example, some linked images use alternative text to describe them.
