City to showcase Typetalk phone system for deaf

A SYSTEM which allows deaf people to communicate on standard telephone lines is to be showcased in the city.

The groundbreaking Typetalk service means people with hearing problems can type text on to a pad, which then gets read out to someone on a telephone at the other end, with the process then being reversed.

Experts will attend the Royal National Institute for the Deaf event at the Albany Street HQ on Friday, from 10.30 am to 4pm. To access the service, textphone users should enter a prefix of 18001 and telephone users 18002.
