The Federation of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Associations of Slovenia backs "Spletna TV", a video production organization responsible for creating the weekly television show "Prisluhnimo Tišini" (Let's Listen to Silence) and Web TV. Both programs serves a dual purpose: it aims to inform deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers while also raising awareness about their unique needs among the general population.

With a history spanning nearly four decades, "Prisluhnimo Tišini" has become an institution in its own right. It is broadcast on national television and has been instrumental in fostering better understanding and inclusion for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals in Slovenian society.

The RTV Slovenia Awards Commission for 2015 awarded the team of the show "Prisluhnimo Tišini" (Let's Listen to Silence) with an honorary award with an RTV Slovenia statuette for the highest quality work achievements and professional contributions over a long period of time.
