Technology is available to make telephone communication available to individuals who are
deaf or hard-of-hearing. Some hard-of-hearing students can use a regular telephone if it has
a volume control. Other individuals must use a TDD (telecommunication device for the deaf).
California has a Telephone Relay Service that makes it possible for a TDD user and a hearing
person to communicate. The telephone number for this Relay Service is 1-800-735-2922. The
Disabled Students Center also has a TDD that faculty/staff can use to call students. The pay
phone nearest to the Disabled Students Center has a TDD available for public use.
