Hi Colleagues,

We recently had a discussion with our Telecommunications staff who were trying to track down the former sites of all TTY devices that were on campus. A lot of them have been disconnected and or gotten rid of since they are an older technology. However, I would like to ask how your university is handling this issue. Do you have any TTYs on campus? Are they advertised on the university contact page? I know that Video Relay is much more in use as well as email by deaf/HOH users but I would like to know if there are any good reasons to retain TTYs, perhaps for consumers who have older technologies they still use for communication.
