People who are deafblind or have low vision can use a TTY and/or TeleBraille device to type words to a Communications Assistant, who then speaks the typed words to the other caller, and types all spoken words back to the deafblind caller.

  • 2

    The Communications Assistant types the other party’s conversation to the deafblind caller.
