A FREE TTY MACHINE
I know that most Deaf now use relay operators or VRS, but I have an elderly deaf friend who has a new TTY and telephone that she does not use. Her son had it, but he never used it. So, she would like to get rid of it. Do you know of anyone who could benefit from having a TTY? Please let me know so I can get it to you. (more info? reply to this e-mail)
