Needed telephone services for the deaf

The telephone has long been a foe for dear persons. However, the technological explosion in America within the last decade has not passed up the opportunity of developing ways for the def to use the phone. Smith, Berlje, & Simpson (1966) have expertly described an abundance of new devices, though their study was focused on only one. As more and more deaf persons become familiar with the telephone through the use of new instruments, unforeseen costs render practical use of the phone for the deaf almost impossible.
