  • Amplified telephones - very useful for those who have trouble hearing conversations on the telephone.
  • People with a hearing impairment may use a Telecommunication Device for the Deaf to communicate by telephone. This device is commonly known as a TTY (Text-typing Telephone) or a TDD (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf).
