Deaf Awareness Week >>> A call to industry to engage on the next generation of relay services(14-04-2014)
Relay services have made a huge difference in enabling deaf and deafblind people to access the telephone network, but the community has been left behind by advances in technology. Deaf people have the right to access telecommunications services which are functionally equivalent to those enjoyed by hearing people. Modern relay services are the only way to achieve this. >>> The Government has called on the industry to work with the deaf community and come forward with solutions which meet deaf peoples needs. >>> Full article >>> http://deafcouncil.org.uk/news/ <<<
