Call for Deaf people to test telecommunication service

August 29, 2013

Nippon Foundation aims at the spread of "telephone relay service" for the Deaf hand hard of hearing, looking for 500 persons who are Deaf and hard of hearing to check the service from September 1, 2013 through March 31, 2014.

The service has two kinds: the video relay service using sign language with a TV phone, and the "chat relay service" which uses writing, etc. Either or both of them can be applied for monitoring.

Fee of the relay service will be covered by the foundation, except the communication fee containing a terminal equipment and the charge of the Internet which is paid by a user.
