Post a Text Telephone sign to inform visitors that text-based communications equipment is available. Text telephones are an accommodation for the hearing impaired that enables them to access and enjoy information and content.
Text telephone or the acronyms TTY (TeleTYpe), TDD (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf) and TT (Text Telephone) refer to any type of text-based telecommunications equipment used by an individual who does not have enough functional hearing to understand speech, even with amplification.
Via a text telephone, the person sending a message types it on a small keyboard, and the person receiving the message reads the text on the display. In order for a person to use a text telephone, the individual at the other end of the conversation must also have a text telephone or they must use a relay service. A relay service provides an operator who reads the text and speaks the message into a telephone, or listens on a telephone and types the message on a text telephone.
Consult with the National Association of the Deaf to learn more about providing equal access for the hearing impaired.

EASY SIGN INSTALLATION
Foam tape or wood pegs
Many clients order office signs with foam tape, in which case your signs arrive with double sided foam tape pre-applied. To install your signs, simply remove tape backers, apply a circle of silicone and press your sign against the wall or door for 5 seconds.
For sturdier Text Telephone sign installation or highly textured surfaces, order signs with wood pegs. While installing signs with wood pegs requires drilling wall holes, it is more secure.
If you plan to install your signs using the four peg installation approach and don’t want to run to the hardware store, add our installation kit to your order.
If your Text Telephone sign is being applied to glass, just let us know and we’ll provide a thin wood backer for a nominal fee. A backer on the other side of the glass covers up foam tape for a polished look.
