    Description: HELLO, I CAN HEAR YOU NOW

    Do you or someone you know have a hearing loss? Relay Iowa and Telecommunications Access Iowa (TAI) have options that can help people who have a hearing loss communicate on the telephone. Relay Iowa has services such as Captioned Telephone which allows people to read what is being said to them on the telephone. The service is available on a landline phone, as well as through internet options or smartphone applications. The service is available 24/7, and there is no cost for the service. TAI helps Iowans get specialized phone equipment for little to no cost. TAI is a program of the Iowa Utilities Board and offers discount vouchers that help pay for 95% of the average cost of this equipment. It is not a low-income program, so many find that they are eligible. During this presentation you will learn how it works, what options are available, and how this program can benefit you!
